Prüm Valley Trail


The Prüm Valley Trail (“Prümtalweg”) leads through the romantic valley of the small river Prüm. The deep valley that the Prüm has carved for itself into the shale rock over millions of years, and the wide array of bends, breaches, valley widenings and river terraces that it has created are really impressive. A particularly beautiful example of this is the Ritscheberg hill, the spur of which contains the remains of a pre-history ring wall. The slopes of the Prüm valley contain a range of different woodland landscapes. The 300-year-old Napoleon oak takes its name from Napoleon Bonaparte, who is said to have travelled through the Prüm valley in 1812 and stopped to rest here. However, the route has plenty of other delightful views to offer.

Zemmer Grundsgraben Adventure Tour

This route requires some endurance. The start at the observation tower Rodt with the panorama view over the Eifel is great. The trail runs partially along the ``Premiumwanderweg "Eifelsteig. The hike is varied, there is a lot to see and discover as for example; parts of a reconstructed Roman wall, a former horse watering place, the ``Kaiserlinde`` and the ``Heimatmuseum.`` Continue to the water staircase, which promises refreshment during the summer. Through a natural forest part, the path leads back across the Grundgräben to Schleidweiler. The small Kreuzwegkapelle (chapel), which rises on a hill, invites you to linger. Engaged citizens have lovingly designed the surroundings of the chapel.
