The castle route is an addition to the EifelSteig. By combining the EifelSteig with its partner trails, you can create multi-day hikes. The Castle Route is part of the "On Old Paths" package deal which includes a 4 night stay.
The 17km long castle route connects Hellenthal to the village Blankenheim (Forest). From there it is an additional 4km to the town of Blankenheim. Along the way you will see the castles of Reifferscheid, Hindenburg, and the Blankenheim Castle.
Again in 2020, the “EifelSteig Hiking Bus” is in operation and provides a convenient and environmentally friendly connection to the EifelSteig and its partner trails.
