Eifel View Herrenseifen 53539 Kelberg

From this Eifel view you can see the climatic health resort of Kelberg. As the name suggests, the “Kel” testifies to Celtic ancestors. In the Celtic language it means a hill.

The hill here refers to the basalt Hochkelberg, which, at 674.9 meters high, is a landmark of the region and one of the ten highest mountains in the Vulkaneifel. Originally, the mountain that is visible today was 200 meters below the earth's surface.

Station on the History Street

When the area was uplifted, the outer areas were removed; the hard basalt core remained in its form as a stratovolcano. At the southern foot lies the Mosbrucher Weiher nature reserve. To the left of the Hochkelberg you can see the Schwarzenberg. Here you will find the Schwarzenberg pilgrimage chapel with an image of the Sorrowful Mother of God (Pietà). The path from the foot of the mountain to the chapel is lined with 14 Stations of the Cross and is a stop on the local “History Road”.
