Cycle routes in the Eifel

Railway lines

In der Eifel überbrücken meterhohe Viadukte tiefe Täler, queren beleuchtete Tunnel die Berge und hin und wieder säumen Kunst-Skulpturen den Wegesrand.

Wo einst die Dampflok schnaubte, genießt man heute auf einer Radtour das faszinierende Landschaftspanorama der Eifel und eine bequeme Streckenführung fernab vom Straßenverkehr.

Die Radwege sind fast immer durchgehend asphaltiert, haben eine Standardbreite von 2,50 Meter und meist weniger als 2,5 Prozent Steigung. 

Das dichte Netz an Bahntrassenradwegen verspricht Radfahrspaß mitten in der Natur für Familien mit Kindern, für Freizeit- und Genussradfahrer.

Aktiv und zugleich entspannt erlebt man bei der Radtour die Reize der Eifel - etwa die Maare der Vulkaneifel, die märchenhaften Felsenlandschaften im Naturpark Südeifel, den Blick über die Grenze zu den Nachbarn in Ostbelgien und Luxemburg und zugleich eine Fülle an kulturellen und naturellen Schätzen.

Rivers

The nature of the Eifel is criss-crossed by a large number of rivers and streams such as Kyll, Ahr, Erft or Rur - to name only the largest! 

Over millions of years, these river courses have cut deeply into the low mountain landscape of the Eifel. They left behind bizarre rock formations or extensive floodplain landscapes. 

Many of the 'blue veins' of the Eifel are accompanied by cycle routes in the immediate vicinity and open up this unique landscape.

In addition to the mostly comfortable course in the river valleys and at the same time far away from road traffic, they offer another advantage for relaxed Eifel cycling: even without cycle maps, you can simply follow the natural signpost, the course of the river or stream, without stress!

Some cycle paths, such as the Kyll Cycle Path, the Ahr Cycle Path or the Erft Cycle Path, also run close to a railway line.

This makes it easy to get back to the starting point or to get over a hill or two. Bicycles can be taken along free of charge on most railway lines!

Themed cycle routes

Look at the Eifel landscape as a stage: starring the cycle paths that tell the Eifel story(s).

The Eifel-Höhen-Route offers several acts at once: on its 230 kilometres it lives up to its name and at the same time leads in and around the Eifel National Park with breathtaking distant views and exciting insights into the most diverse natural areas.

The Eifel Volcano Cycle Route is no less impressive and challenging.

Among other things, it leads to the world-famous Nürburgring race track.

Perhaps not world-famous, but at least world-famous is the Eifel for its "hot past".

This is told on the Vulkanpark cycle path and in many sights along the way.

The Kleine Kyll Cosmos Cycle Path takes you through galaxies and past the planets of the solar system. And, although you are cycling forwards, the cycle path takes you back - all the way to the Big Bang.

On the Mineral Springs Route you will learn interesting facts about the springs of the Eifel - it is also an important connection between the Ahr Cycle Route and the Maare-Mosel Cycle Route.
