Waterfall, castle and Flammkuche
The highlight of this stretch of the Eifelsteig is undoubtably the Dreimühler-wasserfall, but along the way you’ll also experience the magnificent Burg Kerper castle and the lovely village beneath it where you can get some much-needed rest and replenish your energy at Das Kleine Landscafe.
The Eifelsteig leaves the tiny village of Mirbach and heads up into the hills where you’ll get to see some fantastic vistas of the plateau. Even on a sunny day, be prepared for a windy experience before you descend again towards the Ahbach valley.
The Dreimühler-wasserfall isn’t impressively tall, nor isn’t there much water falling. Rather, it’s a dripping and murmuring stream that filters over rocks carved across the millenia creating a mysterious atmosphere. It’s a stunning place in the forested valley that seems almost tropical with its carpets of lush mosses and the smell of damp rock.
Review of the eigth leg of the Eifelsteig trail
While the waterfall and accompanying streams might be home to a wide variety of interesting wildlife, there will very likely be a lot of tourists in the area, so don’t expect tranquility when passing through. There’s a wild variety to the eighth leg of the Eifelsteig, from expansive fields and steep rock walls to lush valleys and bubbling streams.
