The stages of the Eifelsteig
The Eifelsteig is 313 kilometres long in total and is divided into 15 daily stages of between 14 and 28 kilometres each. The first stage is the shortest by far, with just 14 kilometres. All the other stages are around 20 kilometres long. The most intensive way of experiencing the Eifelsteig hiking trail is to hike for several days in a row. Here, Eifel Tourismus GmbH and other hiking tour operators offer multiple day packages, which include baggage transportation, packed lunches and overnight stays in hotels. Some of the stages can be covered as day hikes, using public transport.
