    A real Berliner moves to Düren in 1877 to open up the Eifel for hikers. Almost the same as icke. 😂

    Monument in honor of Franz Krawutschke (* 1862 in Berlin, † 1940 in Düren).
    From 1877 Krawutschke began to explore the Eifel from Düren and mark hiking trails.
    The outlook tower Krawutschketurm, inaugurated on the Burgberg near Bergstein in 1934, and the Krawutschke-Weg, which runs along the Burgberg, were named after him. In 1939 he was appointed the first "honorary hiking attendant" by the Eifel Association.
