With 747 meters the highest elevation of the Eifel.

The "Hohe Acht" is a tertiary volcano and not least because of the since 1909 standing on its top standing 16,30 meters high "Kaiser Wilhelm tower" widely visible.

If you climb the 75 steps up to the pulpit, you will be rewarded with a fantastic panoramic view over a beautiful landscape. Hills, valleys, hidden villages or the world famous Nürburgring.

There is much to discover why the attached information boards are helpful in orientation.

Around the "Hohe Acht" there are a variety of hiking trails that invite to tours and in many places a beautiful view of the diverse Eifel landscape allow.

Klosterruine Mädburg Kehrig

The monastery ruins "Mädburg" at Kehrig Not far from the confluence of the monastery creek that rises in Kehrig, the Elz flows around a small plateau about 20 m above the valley floor, bounded on the northwest by a rocky steep slope. Here are world-secluded between tall spruce trees and surrounded by thorny scrub, the extensive remains of a small church, which leads to the strange name Mädburg.
