South Eifel Nature Park Hiking Trail No. 71 - Wolsfeld
Some people wonder where the signs with the holly leaf and the number 71 lead to. You simply have to follow them. From Messenweg via Holsthumer Straße, cross the Nims and turn into Burgweg. There the signs lead along the foot of the Wolsfelder Berg for a while until the path climbs the mountain in serpentines. At the top of the plateau there is an opportunity for a wonderful view of the Nimstal and Wolsfeld, and then you meet the path that leads to the Wolsfelder Berg district. A detour of a few steps is worthwhile up to the Hubertus cross.
However, the path actually leads to the left over the ridge to a turn-off behind which it leaves the district of Wolsfeld and continues in the district of Aldorf to the crossroads. Here it meets the trails with the numbers 64 and 66, which are similarly signposted and invite you to further hikes. Incidentally, on this stretch it runs parallel to the Willibrordusweg of the Eifelverein. Our path continues almost to Prümerburg. Here, too, it is worth taking a little further detour to visit the castle.
The trail then turns off and first leads over the heights and then leisurely back down into the valley towards Alsdorf. Here you can enjoy beautiful views of Niederweis, Alsdorf and Wolsfeld. From Alsdorf, continue along the cycle path. The signposting is replaced by colour markings on the path. At about the "shift" we meet the Wolsfeld district again and walk across the Nims to Hubertusstrasse, past Alt St. Hubertus and Wolsfeld Castle back to the centre of the village.
The trail is 10.5 km long and was signposted by the Südeifel Nature Park in coordination with the local communities. It is maintained by the local communities on a voluntary basis.
The trail is passable with wheelchair traction equipment. You can reserve the "Swiss Trac" at the Bitburger Land Tourist Information.
