    In the past, a court was said to have been located near the Eifelblick "Galgennück".
    At a height of 465 meters above sea level you have an excellent view with clear visibility.

    When the visibility is clear, the view sweeps from Sophienhöhe in the north over the Zülpicher Börde, the Cologne Bay and the Siebengebirge to the Hohe Acht in the Vulkaneifel in the south.

    Near this vantage point at the "Galgennück" there is said to have been a court in earlier times.
    At an altitude of 465 meters above sea level, the view extends far to the north over the southeastern tip of the Lower Rhine Bay, the Zülpicher Börde. The Börde owes its high soil fertility to the so-called loess, which was blown here in the last ice age and deposited on the slopes of the Eifel. The landscape also has a very favorable climate, so that large parts of the Zülpich Börde are used for agriculture.
    There are also large deposits of lignite under the Börden landscape, which are extracted in 3 large open-cast mines to generate electricity. The clouds of steam from the power plant towers visible in the background indicate this.
    To the southeast you can see into the Vulkaneifel. The basalt summit of the Michelsberg and the Hohe Acht are clearly visible.

    The Eifelblick Galgennück, located at 465 meters above sea level, is one of the most beautiful Eifel views I've visited so far. In addition to the fantastic view of the Weisweiler and Niederaußem lignite power stations, the Siebengebirge and the Hohe Acht, this view of the Eifel also has two beautiful relaxation loungers for an extended break. There is no more comfortable way to enjoy the wonderful panoramic view.

    Wonderful break area with hiking sofas and explanations about the panorama. With this name you don't even want to think about what was going on here in the past ...

    Great panorama.
    But the route of the Roman Canal is partially invisible from here. It was probably planned by the RÜTTLENKNIEP.
