Due to the flood event in July 2021, the Eifel railway line is currently not completely passable.

The 528 km long EifelBahnSteig is a pure GPS trail, and its name already refers to what makes this trail so special: you hike from station to station and explore the most beautiful landscapes along the entire Eifelbahn route on these tours. Each stage starts at a station and ends at the following station. So these are all long-distance hikes on which the hiker gets to know the most beautiful landscapes along the entire Eifelbahn route. You can get back to the starting point in just a few minutes by taking the Eifelbahn.

The EifelBahnSteig is not about getting from A to B by the fastest route. Even though the starting and finishing stations are often not far apart, the stages can be quite long, because as many beauties and special features of the surrounding landscape as possible are included in the route. The EifelBahnSteig runs for the most part on natural paths that have no markings; small paths, lonely passages and frequent changes of direction are preferred. Due to their natural character, these paths can be partly overgrown with tall grasses in summer or muddy and rutted after heavy rainfall. On the other hand, the routes are exceptionally beautiful and lead into regions that are often not touched by conventional hiking routes.

Some stages of the EifelBahnSteig also lead through the Bitburger Land region. Here you will find stages 17 to 25, which lead from Densborn to Daufenbach.
