Eifelsteig partner routes

Share content:

Over its 313 kilometres, the Eifelsteig passes numerous attractions and beautiful scenery on its journey between Aachen in the north and Trier in the south. To enable you to discover the landscape highlights to the left and right of the route, other hiking trails are signposted along the way, which we call “partner routes”. In part, they run along the Eifelsteig in sections, while other routes are completely separate. In the Volcanic Eifel area, there are 14 routes known as the “Volcanic Eifel trails”.

The partner routes are of the same high quality as the Eifelsteig itself. The clear markings and signs make it impossible to lose your way. Due to their length, the partner routes enable day hikes, or multiple day hikes in combination with the Eifelsteig.
