The Eifelsteig is a 313-kilometer trekking trail divided into 15 stages in the German Eifel region. Hike from Aachen in Nordrhein-Westfalen (North Rhine-Westphalia) to beautiful Trier in Rheinland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate) and experience Germany at its best. Together with Rheinsteig, Malerweg, Rothaarsteig, and Moselsteig, the Eifelsteig is one of the classics for a German hiking holiday. On the Eifelsteig, you are always accompanied by the elements. The motto of the Eifelsteig is therefore "Wo Fells und Wasser Dich begleiten. - Just you, the Water and the Rocks."

On the 313 km long Eifelsteig, hikers can intensively experience the different facets of the Eifel low mountain range. The seasons constantly give the route a new face. Thus, every time of year has its own charm. In spring, the Eifel awakens with colourful meadows and flowering hedges, followed by the famous broom blossoms - called the "Eifel Gold" by its inhabitants. The Eifel has a warm climate in summer when the forests and streams provide the necessary coolness. The autumn colours of the Eifel are also worthwhile and in winter the Eifel is perhaps at its best.
