Who would have thought: hiking is the new trend sport! In our highly technical times, to lace up our hiking boots and to go out into the open air on shoemaker’s centime is more topical than ever. This makes hiking the high school of personalized deceleration. Everyone chooses his or her own tempo, yes, each becomes his or her own tempo. The Eifel is a hiking area par excellence. Here, where the Eifelverein maintains a dense network of well-signposted paths, modern hikers of the digital age have also found their way with GPS and trekking shoes.
