Experience the Eifel region without limitations
The Eifel region - a region that is not only characterised by its "hot past", namely volcanic activities. But also by the green countryside with thick forests and unspoilt valleys with castles and monasteries. Extinct volcano cones and the blue crater lakes of the maars shape the landscape of the Vulkaneifel district. In the north you can explore the landscape with National Park rangers, in the Geopark Vulkaneifel there are disabled accessible discovery tours and the diverse range on practically incline-free former railway line-cycling paths provide an active enjoyment of nature.
The Eifel region is also an active member of the Limitation-free Travel Destinations Germany plc for the expansion of disabled accessible holiday destinations.
