Water Landscape Route


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)

Nationalpark Eifel

Set in a dramatic landscape of woods interspersed with water, the Eifel National Park will allow you to experience the fascinating natural diversity of a wilderness at first hand. For in this large protection area some 65 kilometres southwest of Cologne, nature has been left once more to its own eternal cycle of growth and decay.
