Both the Ardennes and the Eifel are remarkable areas for hiking and cycling. Many accommodations from pensions and hotels to holiday flats and homes are offered. So one can decide on one-day-trips up to holidays of more than a few days. One hiking trail that’s a must is the so-called Eifelsteig. From midyear 2007 this route will interconnect the tradition-steeped towns of Aachen and Trier and leads through all landscapes of the Eifel. Another highlight is the volcano park, Vulkanpark located in the district of Mayen-Koblenz. The park points out the volcanism in the Eifel and how the landscape originated from these eruptions. Many projects regarding this period and the consequences for the current day, information centres and hiking ways help to visualize the Eifel-volcanism.
