Copper Route


The Copper hiking trail (“Kupferroute”) leads to key products resulting from the long history of metalworking in Stolberg. The town’s development was influenced by copper master craftsmen, brass smelters and copper mills. On winding forest paths or over broad meadows, the route also leads to viewpoints that offer a view onto the magnificent Eifel landscape, in some cases right across to Belgium. Unique: from May to August, the calamine pansies are in bloom, which can only be found in these ore fields.

Hotel Am Eifelsteig

Abendkulisse Meerwasserpool & Restaurant

The hotel and restaurant are very popular with hikers and are ideal as a stopover at the end of the first stage of the Eifelsteig.

The wellness oasis "Roetgen Therme" with 7 saunas (including the Eifel sweat lodge, the Himalaya Kirstall salt sauna, the aroma bath and the flower bath, among others) and 5 pools is directly accessible from the hotel. The highlight is the large open-air seawater pool (heated all year round) in the 5000 m² thermal park.

A small but fine hotel - directly above one of Germany's leading wellness facilities. Guests can enter the Roetgen thermal baths directly from their hotel room. The hotel is located in the 200-year-old post office of Roetgen and fits traditionally into the Eifel with its massive walls.
