      This leisurely stroll with a view of the lake takes you around the beginning of the Obersee.2.50 km
      At the start of this short circular tour on the Obersee, there are rocky slopes and a riverside biotope with different tree and plant species. A nature trail will help you identify the species. Soon you will reach a bridge over the Rursee, which presents beautiful views of the lake and its offshore islands. Created by sediment deposits, these islands offer an ideal living room for the shy beaver. Perhaps you will recognize a few gnawed trunks along the bank, because the largest European rodents need the bark to make ends meet in winter. Your hike continues past sun-drenched slopes, where rock specialists such as the yellow-flowering rock stonecrop spread out, which with its thick leaves stores every piece of moisture in its fluffy leaves. Another bridge takes you back to your starting point in Einruhr. Several cafes and restaurants invite you to refresh yourself here.

      Anyone who goes to the beech forests in the Eifel National Park in the summer knows why they are called beech halls. The leaves form the closed ceiling of the hall, the long trunks the columns that support them. It is significantly colder than the hot riverside path of Lake Rursee. And wet. Each trunk wears a bright green shoe made of moss on the foot. Toads that we humans do not touch with bare hands run over the earth, which does not see the sun: a fungal poison on their skin prevents them from simply becoming moldy in this environment. Even climate change with its rising temperatures does not leave the beech trees without a trace and is sensitive to drought. *)On this short hiking tour you can experience the beech forests in the national park up close.Signage: No continuous signage, see directions.
      Parking: Hiking car park in Rurberg at the National Park Tor
      Start: National Park Rurberg
      Tips: Classic hiking shoes, otherwise normal hiking casual clothing. Refreshments in Rurberg.
      Difficulty: A hike without great difficulty.
      Directions: Start is the national park Rurberg. It goes over the bridge at Eiserbachsee and then left over the dam between Obersee and Rursee. At the end keep right to the path of the Obersee. After about two kilometers, the first path to the left begins the climb to the beech halls. The next fork on the left leads back to Rurberg. If you want to walk about twice the distance, follow the signs at this fork towards the Hirschley viewpoint. From there, first on the same way back. There are several ways to Rurberg. The respective length is noted on the information signs.

      A mountain stream that leads us from cascade to cascade.
      At the Ferme Libert you go straight into the forest. From a distance you can hear the sound of the Trôs-Maret plunging into the valley. A real mountain stream that has made its way through hard slate and quartzite rock. To reach it, the path leads past the side of the hill and turns out to be difficult in places. The scenery is mountainous, supported by the presence of a cable that was installed along the creek on the rock for safety.
      A bridge clears the way to the other side of the river. We come to one of the wildest locations in the region. The more we go up the course of the "moor torrent", the narrower the valley. After another small passage through the bridge, we leave the canyon and come to a clearing that was recently covered with tall spruces. The landscape opens up towards the nearby heights of the Venn. At a crossroads we leave the Höhenweg to turn left towards the starting point. *)

      A dirt road leads us out of the village, surrounded by hedges and beech trees, into a dreamy meadow landscape. Here and there are benches to enjoy nature for a moment. We are on the old footpath leading to the former Robertville train station. No train arrives there today, but cyclists and pedestrians are on the Vennbahn, the famous railway cycle path.A little further it goes on a winding path down into the Warche valley to the river. The beaver has found a home here. Sometimes the river is raging, sometimes it ripples away. On footbridges and narrow paths you go down along the Warche. Then we reach the lake and follow the path on the left bank. Anglers sit here calmly and wait patiently for a good catch. Back in Robertville you can look back on a varied and relaxing hike.This is a tour of Touristik-ostbelgien.be "Panorama and high altitude hikes"

      Enchanting landscape of the High Fens, on the roof of Belgium!Starting from the Signal de Botrange, we hike to the viewing platform of the Walloon Venn from where you can enjoy an incredible view of the heath and moor landscape. We follow the path on the left that meanders along the Venn plain and use the wooden walkways that float on piles above the moor: legacy of a construction technique that was already used in the early Middle Ages on a path through the Venn, via Mansuerisca. At Les Wez, we are in the middle of nowhere, in the heart of the nature reserve. What immense expanses!
      A place where travelers shuddered and later overjoyed to discover the Baraque-Michel hostel. The way back is via the Poleur Venn, where traces of human activity from a hundred years ago can still be seen today. The discovery tour continues at Neur Lowé, a microcosm in itself that houses all plant species from the high plateau of the High Fens.

      Great experiences, views and relaxation in the wildlife parkWe start from the Wildpark car park and leave the Wildpark along the car park, through a small opening we reach the open meadow above. You are immediately caught by the wide view of the open areas and register that there are no mountains in the Eifel, but only valleys. At a secured crossing of the L218 we reach Hubertushöhe. Here we have a wonderful view of Lake Rursee that you can only reluctantly leave. We continue through the deciduous forest to the Rursee youth center. The German Scouting Saint George (DPSG) is responsible for the youth center.We now cross the country road and hike on the long route and now reach the heart of the Eifel National Park. The northern part of the Hetzinger Forest is the part of the national park whose natural development is most advanced. We later cross the Schlehbach and hike back, the Schlehbach on the left, to the wildlife park. You can relax here with coffee and cake. After that, you can add a little round through the wildlife park. I refer to my contribution to the wildlife park hereThe short hiking route only spares the station in the Hetzinger forest.

      Discover different ecosystems of the Venn plateauAfter just a few hundred meters we dive into the Venn area. In front of us is the wonderful and still original Fraineu Venn. Thanks to the LIFE project, more than 300 hectares of heath and moorland have been freed from spruce plantations and the open areas have been visibly expanded again. The Trôs-Maret, a real mountain stream, rises from these moor areas.He will be our constant companion on this hike. After a few wooden walkways we come to the remains of the "Cabane du Négus". A hermit lived here in the years around 1950. We leave the heathland and come into the forest to the "Six Hêtres" (6 beeches), a place where the shepherds rested in earlier times. Another amazing place is the wetland of the "Chôdires", populated with birch, alder and aspen. A little further, the wildly foaming Trôs-Maret bubbles by our side and reinforces the wild character of this wonderful hike.This is a tour of Touristik-ostbelgien.be "Panorama and high altitude hikes"
