The complete package: the Wilderness Trail package

Hiking doesn't have to be hard work. If you book the Wilderness Trail package, you will not have to organise transport or accommodation yourself in advance, and you can decide yourself on the level of luxury you would like. 

The basic package from EUR 169.00 includes:

  • three nights’ bed and breakfast in a double room, staying with registered Eifel National Park hosts
  • the trip with the Rurtal regional railway from Zerkall to the National Park Gate at Heimbach station and then the Trail Express bus back to the starting point at Monschau-Höfen
  • the official trail map for the Eifel National Park
  • the hiking guide "Der Wildnis-Trail" (available in German only)  
  • a Wilderness Trail badge
  • the hiking pass and a certificate for those completing the hike through the entire Eifel National Park

The following options are available for an extra charge:

  • a single room
  • additional nights allowing you to slot in extra "lazy days off"
  • transportation of luggage between lodgings
  • centrally placed accommodation with one Eifel National Park host, who will take you to the starting points for each section and pick you up at the finishing point of the relevant section each evening

It is also possible to have yourself accompanied by a registered National Park forest guide, or to book the Wilderness Trail as educational leave (according to German law).

To ensure the smooth processing of your booking, we should like to request that you send us your booking requirements for the package at least ten days before you wish to arrive.

If you would like to organise your Wilderness Trail hike yourself, simply look for accommodation yourself and make sure you book the dial-a-bus Trail Express service in advance. The Monschauer Land Touristik association will not in this case organise your hiking holiday for you. If you would like them to do so, please book the package.

If you have any questions concerning bookings or the package, you can reach the Monschauer Land Touristik association on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (tel: +49-2473 93770).
