Adventure bicycle rides

Thru out the whole Eifel region are dozens adventure bicycle tours created. There are nine tours over previous traintracks and four tours alongside the river who are relatively flat. But also five thematic bicycle paths over the vulcan. Of course also die-hard mountainbikers can go wild in the large forests of the Eifel.

Eifelpark Gondorf

Eifelpark Gondorf offers a unique combination of a zoo and an amusement park. Walk thru the wide wild lanes to see the bears, wolves, lynxs, parrots, dwarfs, kangaroos and lots of other wildlife up close.

The centerpoint of all attractions is the enormous toboggan slide with a length of almost 1000 metres. In the new theme area ‘Building site’ you’ll find an interactive playground with electric diggers for kids.

Station Pronsfeld

The old trainstation Pronsfeld is converted to a railroad museum. At the station is a permanent exhibition with a piece of traintrack, a old locomotive and information signs about the history of the railroad. Nice and interesting to visit when you’re in the neighbourhood.

From this site you may take one of the beautiful walking- or  routes. The Eifel Ardennen Bicycle route is passing. This route is a absolute must do.

Phantasialand

Phantasialand is about 1,5 hours drive from the campsite, but is really worth the trip. Phantasialand is fun for the whole family: a steam carrousel, inviting playgrounds, animating rides, amusing toys for the mini-kids and a  wildwater ride to a looping-rollercoaster and spectaculair live-shows. Fun for the whole family.

Nürburgring

The famous Nürburgring is not around the corner, but for the real racefan worth the trip. Because which circuit allows you to race in your own car or motorcycle to try to beat the track record? When your car is to slow, you may hire a VW Scirocco Cup+, you’ll leave everybody eating your dust at the 5 km long circuit.

Canoeing and Rafting

Fun for who is not afraid for a splash of water. For daredevils (who can swim) you can ride the river ‘Sûre’ with a canoe or kayak.
