Splendid landscapes with rushing brook valleys, breathtaking escarpments, terrace-like vineyards and traditional towns and villages invite hikers to enjoy themselves and relax. Romantic castles and palaces along the rivers Rhine and Mosel and the conical mountains and crater lakes of the Eifel offer a variety of natural and cultural attractions.
The full-day and half-day tours along the Traumpfade are designed to meet the specific needs of casual and leisure hikers who want to experience nature first hand, spend „a fun day out“, or just relax and unwind. Narrow natural footpaths on resilient soil, through serene forests and wild meadows, along murmuring brooks and precipitous rock faces, with spectacular views of the Rhine and Moselle valleys give the trails their unique charm.
All 26 Traumpfade have received „Premium Hiking Trail“ certification from the German Hiking Institute, thus ensuring the highest level of quality. A clear and simple trail signpost system ensures that hikers arrive at their destination safely. Comfortable dream sofas and ergonomically-shaped resting benches placed at regular distances and at especially beautiful lookout points invite hikers to rest, picnic and enjoy the view.
