At the moment, you are still hiking with a fantastic view over the lovely hilly landscape, as the trail leads you into a dense beech forest. You follow the path, the leaves rustle softly over you in the wind and the sun paints fine shadows on the forest floor. Soon you will see stones and rocks between the tree trunks and shortly afterwards you will be standing in the middle of a narrow ravine. On both sides of the sandstone rock walls rise and high above you can see the blue sky. On a metal staircase, it finally goes up and on the rock, high above the trees awaits you a breathtaking view of the South Eifel.

We have selected thirteen hiking trails, where you can explore the diverse landscape of the Eifel, the Luxembourg Ardennes and the Müllerthal – also known as Luxembourg's Little Switzerland. The paths lead you over and over again across the border to Luxembourg, which 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.

The NaturWanderPark delux extends on both sides of the German-Luxembourg border. An extensive network of altogether 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 cliffs, dark caves and narrow gorges that have fascinated people for centuries.
