Whoever comes to Simmerath-Rurberg in the Eifel should bring a sense of adventure. The Rursee and the Eifel National Park offer many varied leisure opportunities for recreation seekers, athletes and families. How about a boat trip on the Rursee? Those who prefer more action have the choice between sailing, canoeing and stand up paddling, especially in summer. The Eifel National Park invites you to take a hike at any time of the year, during which you might spot one or the other of the park's inhabitants. If not: Go to the game reserve! There are several of them in the vicinity. There you can marvel at lynxes, bears, eagles and owls, among others.
