Eifel Platform "Cycle and Hike Train Station"
The EifelBahnSteig is a digital hiking trail and thus a pure GPS trail. Its name already points to what is special about it: Each stage starts at a North Eifel Platform "Cycle and Hike Train Station" on the Cologne-Trier railroad line and ends at the following station.
The EifelBahnSteig is not about getting from A to B by the fastest route. The stages are a bit longer than usual, because as many beauties and special features as possible have been included in the routing. The EifelBahnSteig runs to a large extent on natural paths, narrow trails and lonely passages. This results in an extraordinarily beautiful course of the route, which again and again heads for untouched areas.
