Eifel-Blick Ernstberg

Eifel View Ernstberg 54570 Hinterweiler

From the Eifel view Ernstberg you have an extremely beautiful view. In winter you will also find very good winter sports opportunities here with groomed cross-country ski trails, a toboggan slope and a hut with ski rental.

The good distant visibility is no coincidence with this view of the Eifel. At 699 meters, the Ernstberg is the highest elevation in the Vulkaneifel and the second highest mountain in the Eifel. As such a record holder, it is not far to the remarkable Eifel view. Welding slags form the summit of the Ernstberg. To the east, these outflowing basalt masses form an open semicircular crater wall.

Cave accessible

Just below the summit there is a 200 meter long cave and lava blocks. From the Middle Ages until around 1930, millstones were quarried at the foot of the Ernstberg.
