Ommerscheider forest

Looking for tranquility, fresh air, and breathtaking views, but without too much altitude? Then this magnificent itinerary through Ommerscheider forest is for you. The ride starts with a rather steep climb to reach the hills of Schönberg. Continue – without too much difficulty – through the woods to arrive in the peaceful village of Meyerode. A breathtaking view spreads out before you. Use the shed for a short break (leave it as you found it). After passing through the village, join the road to Ommerscheider forest. You’ll pass the memorial to Eric Fisher Wood, a young soldier who lost his life in 1945, at the age of 26, by fighting some German troops alone. Along the way, there is a covered rest area where you can comfortably enjoy this idyllic area in the heart of nature. Next, follow the water by gently going down the path, before hitting a fairly steep hill. The rest of the bike ride is fairly easy, traveling along the water to Schönberg.
