Etappe 01: Von Kornelimünster nach Roetgen – der Eifelsteig
Eifel Tourismus and Top Trails of Germany planned a hike.
March 1, 2021
Your hike begins in the tranquil Kornelimünster near Aachen, through which the small river Inde flows. From the former Benedictine abbey in the historic town center, it starts along the Inde. On the Itertal Viaduct it goes out into the world and also over the first meters of altitude. Up over narrow paths you get to the towns of Hahn and Friesenrath, past the St. Bernhard chapel and into the woods, where it is best to take a break at the weather mushrooms.You cross the wonderful nature reserve Struffelt on wooden walkways - an absolute highlight in the middle of the blooming heather. Soon afterwards you will enjoy the view over the Dreilägerbachtalsperre and make a few more meters in altitude before you look at Roetgen, your destination for today.
