Eifel-Blick Hochkelberg

Eifel View Hochkelberg 53539 Kelberg

At 675 meters high, the Hochkelberg is one of the ten highest mountains in the Vulkaneifel. This Eifel view is located on its summit and offers an impressive view of the region.

The Hochkelberg is a former stratovolcano, at the southern foot of which lies the Mosbrucher Weiher. Originally, the mountain that is visible today was 200 meters below the earth's surface. When the area was uplifted, the outer areas were removed, but the hard basalt core remained in its shape.

The slopes of the Hochkelberg are now covered with dense and species-rich beech forests. Remains of Roman buildings were also found there.
