Eifelsteig Stage 13


The 13th stage of the Eifelsteig leads from the monastery Himmerod to the little village Bruch.

The "slowing down" effect of Himmerod Monastery continues on the next stage of the Eifelsteig Trail: the trail follows the varied course of the River Salm, past its colourful riverbank flora and numerous mills and through ancient tree populations with wide overhanging crowns. Geologically interesting, almost perpendicular shale rock formations stand to be admired, as does the superb view of Bruch, with the two towers of its historic castle.

Along the route

Himmerod Abbey

Abtei Himmerod, © GesundLand Vulkaneifel

Pass through the gateway to the centuries-old Himmerod Abbey and discover a time that seems long forgotten. The thick walls and small monastery farms of the Cistercian Abbey in the Salm Valley give you contemplative moments in the middle of the GesundLand Vulkaneifel.

Our family-run Landhotel Lamberty is located in the charming Eifel village of Niederkail, a small community in the vacation region of Wittlich Stadt & Land, in the heart of the wild and romantic southern Eifel. The popular long-distance hiking trails Eifelsteig and Karl-Kaufmann-Weg can be reached within a few minutes walk. Our lovingly landscaped country house garden offers plenty of space and opportunity for relaxation and sociable summer evenings. About 16 km along forest-lined curves over the country road you reach the Säubrenner city of Wittlich, faster is the freeway A 60 / exit Wittlich-West. Here you will find the train station in the Wengerohr district with very good connections to Koblenz/Cologne and Trier. We will gladly organize the transfer from the train station as well as from / to the Eifelsteig to our Landhotel Lamberty for you.
