Water Landscape Route


Share content:

This hiking trail starts in Einruhr and leads around the Obersee lake, past the Urft lake dam and over the Paulushof dam to Rurberg. The landscape is dominated by dense deciduous forest. There are plenty of places to stop for a picnic along the way, with a beautiful view onto the lake. From the Urfttalsperre dam, the route continues back to the Eifelsteig. If the route is too long, the tour can be shortened by taking a boat across the Obersee lake. (boat travel/season: April to October)
