The certified premium long-distance hiking trail Eifelsteig leads from Aachen via the Vulkaneifel to Trier. It is the heart of the route with many stages and overnight accommodations. Hiking expert Manuel Andrack called the Lieserpfad, which partly runs on the Eifelsteig, the most beautiful hiking trail in the world.

Wonderful tours connect to the Eifelsteig or branch off from it as Volcanic Eifel paths - including varied circular tours for the less fit as well as for real sports enthusiasts. Leisure paths tell of the battle of the elements that has lasted for millions of years and show today's Vulkaneifel as a reflection of the elementary forces: bizarre rocky landscapes, the constant babbling of the streams or the silence of the maars. Deceleration is the order of the day on these themed trails.
