The Eifelsteig is complemented by the Rur-Olef Route. The Rur-Olef Route runs from Gemünd via Schleiden to Hellenthal. From Hellenthal, the route leads to Rurberg. Along the way you will get to know the beauty of the Oleftal valley and magnificent open landscapes. Attractions such as the Schleiden Castle Church as well as the Hellenthal wildlife enclosure with its bird of prey station enrich the route. From Rurberg you can easily and comfortably return to Gemünd via the Eifelsteig. The hike is also possible with dogs if desired.
Also in 2022, the Eifelsteig hiking bus is in use and provides a comfortable and environmentally friendly connection to the Eifelsteig & its partner trails.
