The fascination of hiking: discovering the Eifel loop

The mountains and forests are calling, and the answer lies in the Eifel loop. A place where nature shines in all its splendor and hikers can expect a unique experience.

April weather in March

The weather in the Eifel can be a real surprise. In a matter of minutes, the weather can change from bright sunshine to a sudden downpour. But despite these unpredictable conditions, the beauty of the Eifel remains unchanged. The fresh air, the scent of the forest and the sound of the wind offer an incomparable experience.

The diversity of paths

The Eifel Loop offers an impressive mix of forest paths, meadows and small paths. While some parts of the route are close to a motorway, which can lead to some noise, the quiet and scenic sections predominate. The views are breathtaking and offer sweeping views across the countryside.

Roman History

The Eifel is known not only for its natural beauty, but also for its rich history. The region's Roman past is particularly interesting. For those interested in this era, there are special hiking trails that lead to historical sites such as the Matron Temple in Marmagen. There is also the Roman Canal hiking trail, which stretches from Nettersheim to Cologne.

Tips for the hike

It is always advisable to prepare well for a hike. A GPS track can help you avoid getting lost. Despite the well-marked trails, it is possible to get lost, as was the case on a hike around the Pagan Temple. This temple would have been the highlight of the route and it's a shame to have missed it.
