Etappe 09: Von Hillesheim nach Gerolstein – der Eifelsteig
Eifel Tourismus and Top Trails of Germany planned a hike.
December 15, 2020
On the way out of the crime town of Hillesheim, you immediately walk to the remains of the historic city wall. A short visit is worthwhile here, just for the great all-round view. We continue to the lakes, limestone cliffs and the Hillesheimer Bach in the Bolsdorfer Valley - pure nature.Then you come to the Kyll River, which you cross and then hike steeply up the forest to the ice and millstone caves on the Rother Kopf. After a visit, you continue with wide views over the gentle hilly landscape of the Eifel. Soon the Auberg will be crossed and at the foot of the mountain you will already see the stage destination Gerolstein.Before the day ends, however, you will hike through the so-called Gerolsteiner Dolomites. Spectacular limestone cliffs with many worthwhile viewpoints. After this fantastic day it goes down serpentines in the Kylltal to Gerolstein.
