Spring Path Eifel ("Eifeler Quellenpfad")
Partner trail of the EifelSteig
Partner trail of the Eifelsteig
Water characterizes our landscape: wide floodplains, deeply cut notch valleys, small and large streams, springs, swamps and ponds are habitats that give the northern Eifel a special charm. This 76 km long hike would like to take you to numerous springs. These include the springs of the Eifel rivers Ahr in Blankenheim and Urft as well as the spring capture of the Roman Eifel water conduit, the Roman canal, a technical masterpiece created by man almost 2,000 years ago in the Urft valley, near Nettersheim. The historic castle town of Kronenburg with its fortified core and picturesque half-timbered houses also lies along the way.
