Ormont Moor Path


A scenic hike around Ormont to the Prüm spring and through the Bragphenn high moor with its rare plant communities.

This circular tour leads around the Eifel village of Ormont up to an altitude of 655 m and runs a lot along wide forest paths.

The starting point of our moorland trail hike is the church of St. Margarete on Kirchweg in the centre of Ormont. We turn right into Weinstraße, which leads us out of the village. The trail then climbs gently through the Dreisbach valley up to the Rothenborn hill (656 m). On the way, you pass the Prüm spring. The Prüm is an approx. 85 km long tributary of the Sauer. Passing the source of the Prüm, we continue along the Neuendorfer Feldflur, cross the K64 and reach the Bragphenn raised bog, the highlight of the hike. The saddle rain raised bog was formed about 7000 years ago and consists of a valuable natural landscape with heather moorland, peat moss stands and a Carpathian birch grove. Peat used to be extracted there. Numerous rare and interesting plants thrive in the small moor, from the Atlantic bell heath, cranberry, orchid, marsh marigold to the sundew, from the pointed-flowered rush to the spotted orchid. You can cross the sensitive wetland by means of a wooden footbridge. The hike also leads through the Rupbach Valley past the remains of the former tank traps of the Westwall. Don't forget the wind turbines that cross your path along the way.

Bragphenn is a worthwhile hiking destination in all seasons.
