The most beautiful sides of the forest in Kermeter Oaks and beech trees in the Eifel National Park account for around 26 and 24 percent of the forest area and are on average 90 years old. On this hike through the Kermeter you will encounter 250-year-old specimens. Note that you will also see dead trees, because they belong to any intact forest community. After all, this deadwood is an extremely important habitat for plants and animals such as insects and woodpeckers. This tour can also be shortened.

I would describe the way as very simple. Most of the time (especially at the beginning) you walk on a wide forest / gravel road. For me actually rather boring but if you really want to stand in a forest again, highly recommended. The short ascent is on a mostly paved path. The most beautiful is the path in the last third, after the viewpoint. I ran the full T2 way and took well under 4h (as you can see).
