On the fourth stage you can expect interesting history, places worth seeing and a picturesque nature - not to forget the fascinating views of the lakes of the Eifel. You walk across the Obersee to the Eifel National Park.Here Urft and Rur meet and you follow the bank over hill and dale to the dam wall of the lake. Then it goes up to the Dreiborn plateau. In the midst of this area, the Wollseifen desert with its former St. Rochus Church tells of the sad but interesting history of the place. You have wonderful views of the Urftsee while you hike to the former Ordensburg Vogelsang.From the viewpoints Kickley and Modenhübel, it goes down into the Urft valley out of the national park. Now you leave the national park and hike down into the Urft valley, to today's stage destination in Gemünd.
