Vacation in the Eifel

Covering an area of more than 110 square kilometers, the Eifel National Park offers a varied landscape with meadows, forests, rivers and moors that are home to rare animal species. This unique natural landscape can be explored with all your senses on well-developed hiking and cycling trails. Bike buses, which take riders and bikes to the starting point of a bike tour, make it easier to choose the desired day tour, so that you can choose just one outward or return route.

However, the uniqueness of the Eifel lies in its maars, the “eyes of the Eifel”, crater lakes that were formed by volcanic activity and can be hiked around or swum through. However, some of the maars are designated nature reserves, so there is a wide range of activities as well as relaxation options on offer here.

The Eifelsteig trail covers 313 kilometers, which can also be hiked in short distances. The paths lead along idyllic rivers, through forests, past magnificent rock formations and across open pasture landscapes.

The Volcano Park is located in the Eastern Eifel, where you can explore the volcanic history of the region. In the Vulkaneifel Nature and Geopark in Daun and other geologically-oriented museums such as those in Manderscheid or Gerolstein, the geological past of the Eifel is explained, with impressive finds on display that make the heart of the geologically interested visitor beat faster! Guided tours can also be booked through the Volcanic Eifel Geopark.

The Eifel castles such as the castles in Manderscheid and Burg Eltz or Cochem Castle on the Moselle are popular excursion destinations for the whole family!
