      Before you start, you can fill up your drinking bottle with mineral water at the Gerolsteiner Helenenquelle. The water comes from the depths of the Eifel, the carbon dioxide is natural and has not been added. Then it goes uphill straight away, to the ruins of Löwenburg. From here you have a wide view over the city of Gerolstein.After the castle it goes idyllically on a narrow forest path a little further up. Arrived at the wooden observation tower on the Dietzenley, you have made the toughest climb. Then it goes on comfortably to Neuroth. Another climb awaits you in the valley of the Kleine Kyll.This stage is tough, but it is also beautiful and varied. The altitude meters show up one last time just before your destination for the day in Daun. You can take a break at the Neunkirchener Mühle before a last, wooded hill with a good 80 meters of altitude is waiting for you - done.

      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!

      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.

      Your hike begins in the tranquil Kornelimünster near Aachen, through which the small river Inde flows. From the former Benedictine abbey in the historic town center, it starts along the Inde. On the Itertal Viaduct it goes out into the world and also over the first meters of altitude. Up over narrow paths you get to the towns of Hahn and Friesenrath, past the St. Bernhard chapel and into the woods, where it is best to take a break at the weather mushrooms.You cross the wonderful nature reserve Struffelt on wooden walkways - an absolute highlight in the middle of the blooming heather. Soon afterwards you will enjoy the view over the Dreilägerbachtalsperre and make a few more meters in altitude before you look at Roetgen, your destination for today.

      Today is your last day on the Eifelsteig and it shouldn't be difficult for you to enjoy it again to the fullest. Today the long-distance hiking trail shows everything it has. It starts with a slight up and down through the Kylltal, you pass the Ramstein Castle and the picturesque Butzerbachtal.Waterfalls splash on the way, you cross suspension bridges and you can marvel at the relics of Roman miners in the Pützholes. But not enough. This is followed by two impressive caves, the Klausenhöhle and the Genovevahöhle. If you have a little extra energy, a detour to the Geyersley viewpoint is very worthwhile.Then things really start. As soon as you reach the Moselle valley near Biewer, you go on narrow rocky paths with magnificent views on a steep cliff to Weisshaus, where your hike ends. To slowly get used to civilization again, you can take the access road to Trier downtown and travel home comfortably from there.

      The penultimate day will be crisp again; it is the longest section and also has some short but steep climbs. After you have left Bruch, the Salmtal also ends a little later. The first notable ascent is on well-developed forest trails up to the high plateau near Zemmer.Now it's getting idyllic again: Forests and fields alternate, here and there you cross a small town. In between there is a wooden observation tower, from which you can look into the Hunsrück in good weather. From here it goes further down into the Kylltal. Before today's stage destination in Kordel, it goes up again over serpentines. Bravo! You have more than earned the ice cream for dessert today.

      You are now in the Salmtal and follow the Salm river through an idyllic landscape on a winding path without much incline. Historic mills greet you at the edge of the path, you continue on lonely to the outskirts of Landscheid, and then dive straight back into the Salmtal. The river leads you to the village of Bruch, your destination for today.

      Just like yesterday, it continues today: quiet, lonely, through untouched nature. You hike on narrow paths through the forest, the slopes of the Liesertal become narrower and narrower. On the way there are some shelters that invite you to take a break. Here you can let the silence affect you again.Later the path winds its way out of the Liesertal. You follow the Ilgenbach, on which the Eifelsteig is now oriented. Here and there the forest clears and you have a great view over the fields and Eifel landscape with its hills. As soon as you see the village of Großlittgen, it's not far. If you still have some energy, it is worth visiting the Himmerod Monastery, which was built in the 12th century.

      From Daun today it goes first to the Liesertal and further up to the Gemündener Maar, the first of three maars that you will encounter on the Eifelsteig. It goes up to the Mäuseberg and the Dronketurm. From here you can already see the next maar.The Totenmaar, actually called Weinfelder Maar, you will then go around completely and then hike down a narrow path to the Schalkenmehrener Meer. After you have left the wonderful maars of the Vulkaneifel behind you, you go through dense forests into the green Liesertal.Only nature awaits you on the second half of this stage. You won't find any towns or streets here. After the idyllic hike through the green valley, you will reach your destination below the Manderscheider castles. A great sight.

      On the way out of the crime town of Hillesheim, you immediately walk to the remains of the historic city wall. A short visit is worthwhile here, just for the great all-round view. We continue to the lakes, limestone cliffs and the Hillesheimer Bach in the Bolsdorfer Valley - pure nature.Then you come to the Kyll River, which you cross and then hike steeply up the forest to the ice and millstone caves on the Rother Kopf. After a visit, you continue with wide views over the gentle hilly landscape of the Eifel. Soon the Auberg will be crossed and at the foot of the mountain you will already see the stage destination Gerolstein.Before the day ends, however, you will hike through the so-called Gerolsteiner Dolomites. Spectacular limestone cliffs with many worthwhile viewpoints. After this fantastic day it goes down serpentines in the Kylltal to Gerolstein.
