The Hocheifel is a paradise for ambitious bike riders. The alternation between challenging ascending tracks and fast descents as well as the mixture of alternating track sections is truly breath taking.
Since 2011 there is also a possibility to rent E-Bikes from RWE Germany in Adenau. In the last years a broad cycle track network was built through the Eifel - also through river valleys and closed rail trails.
In the following you will find an assortment of cycle tracks. For more information please click www.hocheifel-nuerburgring.de.
Experience the "Green Hell" with your bicycle!
Nürburgring the "Green Hell" - the old Nordschleife passes through endless woods all around the Nürburg. The ups and downs of the track may remind you of a rollercoaster. What a fascinating distance profile!
Just as challenging as the racing track itself is the mountain bike track leading right through the "Green Hell". These wonderful and multifaceted 30 km are a must for every mountain biker. You will drive along beautiful forest tracks as well as high mountain roads. If you like climbing you will have a chance to do so at the very first kilometres. It's a promise.
Starting from the historical "Buttermarktviertel" in the Hocheifel town Adenau the track is climbing 300m altitude difference on 5 kilometres. The track reaches its highest point at "Hohe Acht" - the highest mountain of the Eifel.
On the last part of the track you can experience rapid descents. Narrow roads are leading straight downhill. This is where rain has washed deep flutings in the course of time.
The racing track appears now and then all along your tour. All the legendary track sections can be "experienced". Like "Bergwerk" - which gained sad fame due to the accident of formula 1 world champion Niki Lauda. Or "Karussel" where many a decisive battles had taken place.
