A warm welcome to the Wikipedia-portal about the Eifel!

The Eifel mountains lie roughly evenly divided between North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany. On the other side of the German border, in Belgium and Luxembourg, they gradually transition into the Ardennes, but there is no geological division; it is more of a language boundary. Geologically viewed as part of the Rhenish Massif, it is an ancient mountain range that, over the course of time, has been eroded to become a truncated highland. Volcanically it is still considered active; the last eruption was only around 10,000 years ago. Today the Eifel is a very popular and interesting tourist region that has recently been granted national park status.

Counties, towns and villages in the Eifel

The boundaries of a natural and cultural region like the Eifel cannot be precisely defined to the nearest metre. Towns or villages and their associated boroughs or municipalities may be counted as part of the Eifel in one source, but considered outside of it in another; in the areas near the boundaries it is common for parts of a municipality or borough to be consider as both within the Eifel and outside of it.
