Tips

    The Victor Neels Bridge is a steel suspension bridge with four ropes, which spans the Urftsee in the Eifel National Park since 2009.

    The aim and purpose of the bridge construction was to create a connection for cyclists and hikers to get from the Urftseerandweg - coming from both Gemünd and Rurberg / Urftsperrmauer - on the heights beyond the lake to the former "NS-Ordensburg Vogelsang".

    For one thing, it's cool to feel how the whole bridge moves when people go over it. On the other hand you will find lots of lizards under the bridge

    Architecturally appealing, the bridge connects the shores of the reservoir and thus a visit to the Nazi Ordensburg Vogelsang with the way to the Urft dam and the place Wollseifen.

    Interesting construction. 👍
    Through the bridge, the hiking / biking trails are branched together.

    Hiking tip: From the former NS Ordensburg Vogelsang down to the Victor Neels bridge and then the Urft along to Gemünd. Then it's easy to get back on the cheap hiking bus (stop "Kirche Gemünd") to the parking lot Vogelsand.

    If you cross the Victor-Neels bridge to walk further to the former NS-Ordensburg Vogelsang, you should first strengthen yourself with a sip from the water bottle. The next climb is 600 meters long and has a slope of 16 percent.
