Description:
Everything began in Nettersheim- at least as far as the Roman canal and the hiking trail of the same name is concerned. Today you could describe the ancient Romans as connoisseurs, because they laid great value on ancient Cologne being supplied with water of the best quality. How else could it be explained that only for this purpose did they lay a nearly 100 kilometre pipeline from the North Eifel to the Rhine metropolis? Without doubt a great feat of engineering technology! And what is also so special: the hiking trail doesn’t only connect the exploration of the countless  constructions, but also the wonderful cultural landscape of the North Eifel to the Rhine. How full of adventure this can be is shown at the start with the nature reserve Urftaue, through which the Roman Canal Hiking Trail leads.
