Bergheidenweg

Hike along the Eifel-Traumpfad Bergheidenweg (Mountain Heath Trail)

The Bergheidenweg is a hiking trail along magnificent paths through mixed forest, along the Nette and with wonderful views of the Eifel. Due to the good connection with the Wacholderweg, it is also possible to really enjoy the juniper heaths.

Description of the Traumpfad Bergheidenweg

This approx. 10 km long cîrcular path has southern flair between juniper heathland and pine woods. Magnificent paths through mixed forest, along the Nette and the Selbach, wonderful views of the Eifel. Whoever would like to really enjoy the juniper heathland can take the connecting path to the Wacholderweg.

The tour starts at the car park of the winter sports centre, not far from Arft, and goes through open heathland into the nature reserve Heidbüchel. Original pine trees line the footpath through the typical sandy and heath vegetation. Having reached the peak of Heidbüchel, a unique view rewards the climb. On the descent through the forest, the footpath forks and one path joins the neighbouring Traumpfad “Wacholderweg“. At the edge of the forest, the path turns left towards Nette valley. After the little village of Netterhöfe, the trail crosses the Nette and then follows the stream into the valley.

Over a wooden bridge the path again crosses the river. In the Selbach valley that follows, high forest surrounds the hiker, impressive cliff walls give the valley a canyon-like character. Upwards along the rippling brook through the forest and later along footpaths up to a refuge hut from where there is a breathtaking panoramic view. The trail continues slightly downhill over open fields. After crossing the L10, the path continues to the Dr. Heinrich Menke Park. After crossing the L10 again, past the Konrad Adenauer Monument, the path goes round the Raßberg mountain. Soon the starting point of the Traumpfad is reached again.
