    Today you drive past castles, moated castles, forests and the Rur to Heimbach in the Eiffel National Park. On this nearly 65-kilometer stage, once you've left Stolberg behind you with its old town, you'll leisurely walk through meadows and fields of wooded sections. After about 35 kilometers, you will meet at Kreuzau then on the Rur. The official water castle route leads you in a curve (or in a detour) past Kreuzau to the moated castle Burgau and from there back to the Rur. In the end, on the last 15 kilometers of this stage on the RurUfer Cycle Path, you cycle gently uphill through a wooded area towards the Heimbach stage destination in the middle of the Eiffel National Park. On the way there you pass beside several nature parks also the reservoir Obermaubach with its dam.
