Route from:eifel.info/wandern/wanderwege/a-eifelspur-toskana-der-eifelThe original route was shortened a bit due to foot problems. Super extraordinary hilly landscape with pleasant and well-marked paths. The journey was really worth it! 👍👍👍Parked: 50.36741537473677, 6.638757244044938Space for 1-2 cars, otherwise there is a parking space for hikers at the cemetery.Text from eifel.info:The juniper, the cypress of the north, is the star on this 16-kilometer Eifel trail "Tuscany of the Eifel" hiking tour. The largest contiguous juniper conservation area in North Rhine-Westphalia is located south of the municipality of Blankenheim.The Lampertstal nature reserve, which is crossed on the hike, is an ecological gem of particular value. Through centuries of extensive grazing, valuable habitats for flora and fauna have developed here. They were created in the Middle Ages by clearing the forests. The rough grasslands have shaped the landscape of the northern Kalkeifel for centuries and are among the most beautiful and nationally important cultural biotopes in the Eifel.Orchids bloom in early summer and gentians in late summer. Numerous insects populate the flowery lawns of the limestone drifts. In the middle of the landscape, the Calvary rises above the landscape. From there you can let your gaze wander far over the landscape. The Hohe Acht, the highest mountain in the Eifel, rises on the horizon. Feel the special magic of the Calvary and forget everything around you at least for a moment.
Very beautiful photos! 🤗
