Tips

    "... We slowly gain height, cross a street and hike further and further out of the Rur valley, up to the“ Mariawald ”monastery. Soon we see the bricked stations of a crossroads at regular intervals. We cross the country road again and walk then along a white wall that seems to have no end. Finally we turn left and enter the monastery grounds. ... "

    The path from Heimbach up to Mariawald Abbey is lined with elaborately designed stations of the cross. "The following hike on the Kreuweg should be done for oneself in peace and contemplation by visiting the 14 stations about the suffering of Christ. Through the sloping, wooded terrain, everyone can find the necessary peace and quiet in their own way." Steffi Diefenthal writes in her article "The Trappist monastery in Mariawald. Still a place to reflect and linger" in the Eifel Yearbook 2021 (published by the Eifelverein eV, Düren).

    Wonderful route, the ascent is quite demanding and requires a good level of fitness, but it is definitely worth it. The way back is quite easy to take.

    If you look for the ascent on Google Maps, it is called "Stationsweg" there.

    Very nice, long section with many Stations of the Cross. Based on the numbering of these, the official direction for walking is uphill :)
