  • Eifel Tourismus

    From Blankenheim you hike up and down through the wooded region and follow the historical "bread path". There is a rustic refuge here for a quiet break. Immediately afterwards, the forest path leads slightly downhill into the Schaafbachtal near Ripsdorf. Past the church, you cross an agricultural region to Alendorf.Between isolated juniper bushes on poor grass, the Eifelsteig takes you up to the summit cross on the Kreuzberg. There you can enjoy the all-round view of North Rhine-Westphalia again, because shortly after the descent you will cross the border to the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Over a small wooden bridge you leave the lonely juniper landscape in the Lampertstal and follow the Mirbach to the village of the same name. At the end of this stage you can still enjoy the peace and quiet in the Erlöserkapelle, which rightly deserves the title Eifeldom.
