    Beautiful passages along the Rur. There are many beautiful places where you should also activate the camera once.

    For his 100th birthday gave the Eifelverein Monschau all hikers the "century way". He is the plant suitable for long-distance hikers as well as for walkers. It can be shortened or lengthened on the way several times. The Century Route was opened on September 14, 1985.

    There are many beautiful passages where you should activate the camera. Impressive is the silence and the sound of water. Coupled with sunlight, here are great motives ..

    On his 100th birthday, the Eifelverein in Monschau donated the "century path" to all hikers - this gift is more than successful, and the trail deserves at least the title Premium. The route is marked very well with the number 100 and signposted, the sights are explained by information boards.
    The path can be shortened several times on the way or even extended, in addition it requires because of the slopes of ~ 460 meters and the length of ~ 15.5 km a good portion condition.
    The century route starts and ends in the parking lot Burgau (at the glassblowing) in Monschau.
    The route is gigantic, partly on narrow and steep paths, partly on wide paths - but always quiet and little frequented. The signage is perfect: a "100" with an underlying arrow. You can not get lost, even without GPS.
    In addition, there are many boards with interesting information about history and nature. One of the highlights is certainly the summit cross of Ehrensteinley, which invites you to take a long break. Also impressive is the view from the Engelsley above the Perlenbachtals.

    Idyll pure along the Rur

    Very nice passage through the Rurtal. Since the Rur rises in the High Venn, the water is enriched with very fine peat particles. These are deposited in the quieter marginal areas of the Rur in a very fine brown layer.

    One of the most beautiful passages along the Rur. On a narrow path, it's right on the rushing water long. The upper Rur valley is narrow here, on both sides of the forest slopes go up steeply. In wet weather, the path can be quite muddy and sometimes a bit slippery on rocky places.

    This section along the Rur is one of the most beautiful in the entire course of the river. Sometimes flowing smoothly, sometimes rushing through mighty stones, the mountain stream constantly changes its character.

    At this point you can take a wonderful break. There are some flat rocks on the bank that you can sit on and dangle your feet in the water.
