Holidays in the Eifel region: From pure nature to the Nürburgring race track

The last volcanic eruption in the Eifel region was a mere 10,000 years ago and traces of the Eifel's fiery history can be discovered today: The landscape is dotted with the cones of extinct volcanoes and blue crater lakes or maars. The natural beauty of the countryside between the Moselle and Ahr valleys is best explored 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.
