Rolling hills and mountains up to 650 metres, deep valleys and a wealth of forests and lakes distinguish the Eifel as one of the most beautiful low mountain landscapes in Germany. Large parts of the District of Euskirchen lie within the German-Belgian National Park. Here you can experience a journey through history, culture, leisure and recreation. The Eifel landscape offers everyone what they want and like. Hiking without baggage... on the steep track of the Eifel on old paths through the medieval centre of the village of Blankenheim, crowned by its castle, and the castle estates of Wildenburg and Reifferscheid.
Guided weekend walks offer you views of the varied landscape, as well as of the economic culture of the Eifel. Accompany us on visits to a bee-keeper, a cheese dairy, a working farm or forestry operation. Or start from Blankenheim, the source of the river Ahr, in the famous Ahr valley. Here Ahr Burgundy flourishes, one of the finest German red wines. Or go on a guided tour of historical mines, which tell the history of over 2000 years of ore mining, including the establishment of the mining museums and mines open to visitors in the District of Euskirchen.
