The Eifel - everyone's hot favourite

The earth has retained signs of its fiery past here more than anywhere else in Germany. The landscape between the Moselle and the Ahr is dotted with the cones of extinct volcanoes and blue crater lakes or maars.
The natural beauty of the countryside is best explored at a slower pace, either on foot or by bike. Make a hiking tour along the long-distance trail Eifelsteig: A string of small historical places line your route through the valleys and hills, some gently rolling, others more precipitous, as you pass hedges of yellow gorse set against the wide, blue sky.
The Nürburgring, famous motor-racing circuit and scene of legendary car races past and present, is a beast of a quite different nature.
