    You start your hike at Mirbach's impressive Erlöserkapelle. It's worth taking a look inside and marveling at the golden mosaic. We continue on pleasant paths through green forests and meadows. Soon you will catch the first glimpses of the volcanic landscape of the Eifel. On your way you will pass a striking refuge. After about half of today's route you will reach the Dreimühlen waterfall in the Mühlenbachtal.Before you get to the crime town of Hillesheim, you can visit the Niederehe monastery and the Kerpen castle, which rises on a dolomite spur above the village. Here you can enjoy the great view again before you go to the Café Sherlock, the crime house or even the crime hotel to spend the night. Hillesheim is a stop on the "Eifel-Krimi-Wanderweg", which is based on books by crime authors Jacques Berndorf and Ralf Kramp. Look forward to an exciting visit!
