    This tour starts directly at the Dürener station. From here, you can quickly reach beautiful trails - after all, Düren is not for nothing called the "Gateway to the Eifel". Through the Meroder Wald, where you come past the ruins of the Schwarzenbroich Monastery, you head for the Wehebachtalsperre, which - purely visually - is a real bang. It continues: About half the distance of this round you land in Hürtgenwald-Simonskall, where the bike park Hürtgenwald has its home.Here you have the choice. If you want to spend the whole weekend in the Eifel, Hürtgenwald offers as a base station. There are a few rustic guesthouses here and there is the bike park, whose great trails invite you, if you still have time and energy. In this case, you open your quarters here and pick up the rest of the tour for the way back.If you just want to do a day trip, just follow the route that will take you back to the starting point. Particularly noteworthy is the so-called "Kalltrail". The is a relic from the Second World War and is reminiscent of the "Battle in Hürtgenwald". The Wehrmacht's battles against the US Army in this area are among the heaviest in the whole war - the floor slabs on the trail are reminiscent of tanks once rattling past. How good that these times are over. Instead, you can enjoy the beautiful landscape and rural idyll here today. Passing the Obermaubach dam and Untermaubach castle, this tour ends at Düren station.Really cool is that the Düren train station is so well connected. From Cologne there is even a S-Bahn connection. So you can easily arrive by train and leave the car at home. No parking space search, no traffic jam stress, but pure relaxation!

    The first part of the tour to Germeter is not that great. Only through the forest without views. The Wehebachtrail is completely broken by heavy forest machines. A muddy desert, practically impassable. From Simonskall it will be wonderful. Beautiful paths with views. "Easy" up and down. The trail on Dresbach is fantastic. Absolutely recommended.
