The Eifel is packed with interesting sights and interesting destinations. Here we present a number of leisure activities, sports activities and excursion destinations for nature lovers.

Volcanism in the Eifel

The environment here has been shaped by volcanism and, because of its geological manifestation, is a landscape that does not exist again in Germany. Anyone who has seen the funnel-shaped depressions with the circular maars will realize why this area is called the Vulkaneifel.

Around 350 eruption centers tell of the fiery and exciting history of the volcanic Eifel. Geo-museums and numerous geo-facilities, such as geo-paths and geo-parks, reveal scientific phenomena. Carefully selected cycling and hiking tours lead to the treasures of this fascinating landscape. For detailed information – ask us!
