      Around Monschau on 10 "paws"
      15 km (if you don't criss-cross through Monschau) and 500 meters in altitude
      The route leads partly on beautiful paths, partly on forest highways, past really beautiful highlights:
      The wild Rurtal
      Reichenstein Monastery
      Sections of the Fens
      View of the Eifel Cathedral in Kalterherberg
      Engelsley and Teufelsley before Monschau
      The Hasselbachtal
      And of course the beautiful Monschau, where we went out to eat, drink mulled wine and shop for a long time. What fun 😂
      (And I was even rewarded with TWO new knitted dresses for planning the tour😂❤️👍)
      Despite the dreary but dry weather, we liked it a lot, because the really varied nature on this route was once again exhilarating.
      The paths were consistently sometimes strong, sometimes less muddy.
      It is therefore essential to wear sturdy, waterproof footwear.
      The paths taken are impassable, at times steep and slippery, so surefootedness is required.

      ... and "lowlights".
      15 km and 690 meters in altitude
      From the old waterworks it was first on footbridges and paths along the reservoir and finally, high up on the Meuchelberg, to put down a few meters in altitude for the first time and enjoy some beautiful views.
      But what is the Meuchelberg compared to the Bildchesberg, which scored with its small climbing path right at the beginning and finally rewarded the steep ascent with the great Luna view ?!
      In general, the paths of the Bildchesberg are absolutely my taste: rocky, narrow, steep, with a view, gnarled trees on the slope ... 👍😃
      From there I went on towards Mariawald Abbey, where I took a longer break to fortify myself with pea soup and shandy, recommendable 👍
      Through the really beautiful Herbstbachtal, as the name was today, it finally went back slowly, again steeply uphill in the Steinbachtal, where the path eventually turned from the path to the forest motorway and shortly before the end of the tour I got interesting insights into got the pretty nicely laid out holiday resort. My conclusion: the tour was nice.
      The last section of about 2 kilometers less beautiful. The holiday resort is not for me 😊

      Today's tour:
      Start in Bergstein
      14.8 km and 690 meters in altitude
      Partly steep descents and climbs on scree and slippery surfaces. Therefore, sturdy shoes and surefootedness are not unimportant. A walking stick can also be helpful 😊
      The Krawutschketurm is located in Bergstein on the Burgberg, from which one has a fantastic view of the surroundings. Today there was also a wind blowing up there that almost knocked me out of my shoes. 😂
      For the most part, my path was very exciting and narrow. It was wonderful!!
      And there were some really very nice sections of the trail and very, very nice views.
      It was worth it again.
      I did not follow a fixed tour with signs. Sometimes I was on the popular red sandstone route, sometimes on less frequented paths.
      A highlight was the lonely path below the red sandstone route, which led past the so-called Rather Felsen. Very impressive.
      Only then did I take the red sandstone route to the Hindenburgtor, from there to beautiful Nideggen, where I just couldn't do without the delicious onion cake with Federweiss in the café on the market.
      From Nideggen it went on towards Rur and so then finally (the last 2 kilometers) steadily uphill towards Bergstein

      The Rheinecker Felsenweg near Bad Breisig (signposted with the number 8 throughout)8 km, 200 meters of altitude
      Start of the Bad Breisig thermal baths car park
      Entertaining, easy hike in Bad Breisig at the end of our hiking weekend.On this short tour you mainly go on wide paths and especially on asphalt for the last 2-3 kilometers.
      Since you are also right on the Rhine with its well-developed transport network, road noise is omnipresent in places.
      But this route still has its beautiful sides.
      The Reutersley view in particular offers great views of the Rhine and Rheineck Castle.
      The ascent and path to Reutersley is even rocky and impassable, so you should be a bit sure-footed there.
      Shortly before the end, a few pubs and restaurants in Bad Breisig invite you to linger.
      So we took the opportunity with a sunny 18 degrees and ate well on the Rhine terrace of the Rheinischer Hof with a beautiful view of the shipping, before unfortunately we went home again.
      In any case, this area is also very beautiful and there is definitely one or the other wild path to explore there.
      In any case, I'm curious 👌

      The Traumpfad Vier-Berge-Tour is one of the dream trails that really deserve this name.
      Since we absolutely wanted to start in Rieden in our accommodation, of course the 13 kilometers of dream path turned into a whopping 21 km and 795 meters of altitude.
      AND with the goose neck tower we not only had another top highlight with a sensational 360 degree view, but also a fifth mountain with us.
      Actually, this tour offers everything you could want. Paths and paths through beautiful forests, enchanted rock formations, a great cave (Genoveva), beautiful meadow sections, intoxicating views and expanses.
      If I were to look for a fly in the ointment, then at most a stream and a place to stop for refreshments would be missing.
      But no, we really enjoyed this tour and it was a lot of fun 👍👌❤️

      Summer child in the fall color frenzy ❤️🍂🌞
      I know every season is great for hiking, nature always has a lot to offer, regardless of the weather.
      But my favorite hiking time is and remains the summer with its abundance of life and the beautiful, long days 😃
      But today I of course enjoyed this wonderful autumn day and am still intoxicated by the colors.
      How not when autumn shows itself at its very best?
      It went from Rieden to the dream path Heidehimmel.
      Contrary to the name, dream paths are sometimes more or less a dream, rather less path than path, mostly well signposted and always very popular, i.e. a little more frequented. (My opinion 😄)
      Aaaaaber in this heather sky I really felt a little closer to heaven. Super beautiful views, great forests and a beautiful heathland 😃🌞
      Since the start was in Rieden: 14 kilometers (normally only 9km)
      And 506 meters of altitude
      I added a small deviation from the original path at km 6.5 Falkesley, because I liked the path much better downhill 👍

      14 kilometers and 625 vertical meters on partly very demanding and alpine pathsThe Steinerberghaus is simply perfect as a starting point for hikes around the Ahr valley, because it not only offers sufficient parking, but in addition to delicious homemade cakes, pea soup or currywurst, it also offers wonderful views with a 360 degree panoramic view.
      Really recommendable!
      For us it was then on quite good paths down the valley towards Schrock, where the good paths became adventurous paths 😄
      Continue towards Langfigtal, where the consequences of the flood disaster are still showing extreme damage. The former bank path is actually no longer there, even if you can still walk there. Up far up the slope there are still flotsam, rubble and rubbish and the original character of the Ahr in this section can no longer be recognized.
      Wonderful splashes of color suddenly brought many, bright sunflowers that grew there, like little glimmers of hope they stood there in this devastation. 😊🌻
      We followed this loop of the Ahr until shortly before Altenahr, where three months ago there was a huge crater at the tunnel exits. It is amazing what the clean-up work has already been done there. You can clearly see that things are progressing, even if every look at these places makes you wistful. Sometimes we had to climb a bit on the former geopath on the banks of the Ahr to get over rocky slate sections. And finally it was on the mountain path towards the Schwarzes Kreuz and Teufelsloch, from there very steep, rocky, impassable and permanently uphill to the Hornberg.
      From here the ways back towards the Steinerberghaus became a little more leisurely.
      But after the exertion, shandy and pea soup tasted all the better 😁

      We followed the call to “hike for reconstruction”, like so many others today in beautiful Wiederaufbau/Seldom are “beauty and rubble” so close together as on the red wine hiking trail between Mayschoss and Dernau.
      It is a bit oppressive feeling when you hike through this beautiful nature and in the valley on the Ahr the destruction is omnipresent even after three months.
      You can hear the construction noise, see the construction vehicles on the heavily damaged road, destroyed bridges and houses along the Ahr ... and should you enjoy the wine?
      Yes - because the end justifies the means.
      This area lives from tourism and not only needs helping hands, but also guests again as soon as it is possible again.
      There are a total of 7 wine stands between Mayschoss and Dernau that invite you with their delicacies. We drank a drink from almost everyone on our route 😊We started this morning above Dernau, walked 4 km on the Winzerweg to Mayschoß and from there back over the red wine hiking trail, where the wine stands currently invite you to linger on the weekends.

      Pure autumn feeling in the valley of the Wild EndertDistance hike of 18.5 km
      Start at Martental Monastery
      End in Cochem
      Mostly downhill, about 600 m 😂
      And almost 300 m uphill.
      Originally I had planned a completely different tour today, but spontaneously I really wanted to hike the wild paths of the even wilder Endert.
      And I haven't regretted it.
      Since this is not a round trip, I first had to take the bus from Cochem to Martental Monastery. No problem in itself, had it not been for the notice on the timetable at the Endertplatz bus station that the bus only goes to Kaisersesch station and that you have to order a taxi in advance under a certain number in order to get on from there.
      At first it was stupid because there was no information about it on the internet, but after a phone call I actually got a taxi to get to the monastery immediately after arriving in kaisersesch. Super. 👍
      And then it started.
      This part of the Endert route from the Reusch waterfall goes really wild over narrow paths into another, mystical world and is totally fun!
      The autumn now colors the leaves more and more and even if the sun didn't come through today, the mood was totally autumnal 🍂
      Incidentally, a stop at the Göbelsmühle is also highly recommended on the way. Nice and tasty there 😊
      So the Endert meanders through its valley, sometimes almost like a gorge, sometimes fast and wild, sometimes leisurely again.
      And since it was only downhill, it was really an all-round relaxing hike.
      2 km behind the cutting mill, the path becomes wider and even if the area is still very beautiful, a bit of that special is lost.
      I should have deviated from my route there and went back to Cochem via the zickelslay on the other side, because only the last 2-3 kilometers above Cochem were super beautiful again, where there are beautiful views of the summit cross from a very lonely small high path des Pinneberg, to which Reichsburg, Winneburg and Cochem gave.
      The last bit down to Cochem I was even rewarded with a small “ridge path”.
      Long story short:
      Off to the valley of the wild Endert 🍂
      The tour would have been ideal for me with the following route
