Hiking Trails for Families with Children
Also for families with children the North Eifel has "wanderful" experiences to offer. In addition to guided hikes with the National Park Rangers, there are opportunities for interesting but not too challenging hikes on some EifelSchleifen & EifelSpuren and in the Eifel National Park.
Almost all trails are thematically prepared, so that amusement is provided during the hike. Choose a tour that is well suited for your family in terms of length.
We will be happy to send you free informational materials to help you plan your hike. You can also order hiking maps from us for a fee.
"Romans, Milk and Moorland Stories"
On the EifelSchleife "Milchweg" near Kall, you will learn all kinds of interesting facts about agriculture and dairy farming in the Eifel. The EifelSchleifen & EifelSpuren in Mechernich and Nettersheim are a particularly good way to immerse yourself in Roman times. In Nettersheim, exciting stories about geology are also told. A special place along the trail is the fossil field. The Eifel Nature Center (Naturzentrum Eifel) is the ideal starting point for the hikes in Nettersheim.
In the heart of the Eifel National Park, the "Kermeter", the interactive "Wilder Weg" leads through native red beech mixed forests. To heather moor areas with numerous peat moss stands leads the EifelSchleife "Moorpfad" near Dahlem.
"Kakus, Knights and Kingfishers"
On an EifelSchleife around the Kakus Cave near Mechernich, you can follow in the footsteps of the giant "Kakus". On an Eifel loop around Satzvey Castle, you and your little ones can marvel at a medieval moated castle, which today is known for its knight festivals. Near Hellenthal, the kingfisher is the protagonist of an EifelSchleife. Water takes center stage on the circular tours around Lake Kronenburg, Lake Freilingen and the Olef Dam.
