The origins of the Eifel are volcanic, and the well informed walker will be able to recognise many of its geological features. Also, a large expanse of moorland is still intact, including its desolate atmosphere of openness. Another feature are the deep valleys of both Rhine and Mosel on the eastern side. The western side is on the border with Luxembourg and Belgium, where the moorlands continue.
The trail explores all these interesting features of the Eifel region, the medium high hills, open farmland and simple villages. Both Aachen and Trier, beginning and end of the path, show remnants of their Roman past.
