Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Gillesbachtal is a hiking highlight in every season, but it deserves special attention in early spring, around mid-April, when the Eifel's largest occurrence of pasque flowers is in bloom here.
Guided hikes from the Eifel Nature Park are even offered at this time.

The Gillesbachtal offers beautiful hiking trails, e.g. between the train station in Urft and Marmagen, in spring you can also find plenty of wild garlic and on the poor meadow slopes you can admire numerous blooming pasque flowers along a narrow path.

The Gillesbachtal is an original and attractive brook valley. The Gillesbach meanders in several arms through the brook valley. On both sides of the Bachtal there is a hiking trail that leads through a beech and wild garlic forest on one side and on the lime-lime meadows with the pasque bells. One of the few occurrences of this spring bloomer can be found here. The landscape is very beautiful.
