You are just walking with a fantastic view over the lovely hilly landscape, when the hiking trail leads you into a dense beech forest. You follow the path, the leaves rustle softly above you in the wind and the sun paints fine shadows on the forest floor. Soon you recognize stones and rocks between the tree trunks and shortly afterwards you stand in the middle of a narrow gorge. On both sides the sandstone cliffs rise and high above you you can see the blue sky. On a metal stairs it finally goes up and on the rock ridge, high above the trees a breathtaking view of the southern Eifel awaits you.

The NaturWanderPark delux extends on both sides of the German-Luxembourg border. An extensive network of 23 hiking trails leads you along torrents, to idyllic reservoirs, through picturesque river valleys, into deep forests and above all into the mystical gorges. In many places you can explore sandstone rocks, dark caves and narrow gorges that have fascinated people for centuries.

We have selected ten hiking trails for you to explore the diverse landscape of the Southern Eifel, the Luxembourg Ardennes and the Mullerthal - Luxembourg's Little Switzerland. The paths will take you across the border to Luxembourg, which sometimes runs in the middle of the forest and sometimes along rivers. The tours are well signposted and thanks to good hiking trails you can enjoy the varied nature to the fullest.
