The North Eifel also has a lot to offer for families with children. In addition to guided hiking tours with national park rangers, there are opportunities for interesting, but not too challenging hikes on some Eifel Loops & Eifel Traces routes and in the Eifel National Park.
Almost all tours are themed so that no one will get bored during your hike. Choose a tour that suits your families level of capabilities and interest.
"Romans, Milk, and Swamp Stories"
On the Milk Trail near Kall you will find out a lot about agriculture and dairy farming in the Eifel. Plunge into Roman times in Mechernich or Nettersheim. Nettersheim is also a great place to listen to exciting stories about geology. A special place on route is the fossil field. In the "Kermeter", the heart of the Eifel National Park, the interactive "Wild Path" leads through the native copper beeches mixed forest. The "Swamp Path" in Dahlem leads you to moorland areas with peat moss.
"Giants, Nights, and Birdsong"
Follow the footsteps of the giant Kakus on a loop around the Kakus Cave near Me-chernich. On a hike around the Satzvey Castle you and your children can admire a medieval moated castle which is now famous for its Knights Festival. The Kingfisher is the star of one hike in Hellenthal. And the water takes center stage on loops around Lake Kronenburg and the Olef reservoir.
