The former hunting & forestry house (* 1922) is located deep in the forest (nature park Hohes Venn-Eifel) on its own grounds of approximately 40,000 sq.meter, only a few hundred meters linear distance from the Eifel National Park. Visitors enjoy the peace and can breathe deeply:
Located on 500m over sea level, Waldquartier Wackerberg guarantees not only pure air but also a favourable microclimate. On warm summer days, it is up to five degrees cooler than in the cities of the Rhineland as Cologne or Bonn; heat and humidity are practically unknown here.
Only a few steps away, enter the "Eifelsteig", one of the most attractive hiking routes in the region. But the region can also be explored by bicycle, on horseback, or - in snowy winter time - with cross country skis.
Sauna, gym, trampoline, archery, barbecue;
Internet access throughout the building;
CO2 neutral building based on a combined solar thermal & pellets heating system.

Despite its unusual location, the Wackerberg forest district can easily be reached by car. The next Motorway (A1) exit is only a 20 min. ride away, the Cologne-Bonn Airport about an hour. Thus, a residence set right in the nature is even a surprisingly good starting point for city trips.
Four of the oldest and culturally interesting German cities (founded by the Romans) can be reached in a 40-80 minute drive:
Cologne - Bonn - Aachen - Trier
Recreational activities range from field trips with National Park Rangers to gyroplane flights starting on a nearby private airfield, from the family trip to Phantasialand Brühl to the racing grounds of the Nurburgring (Formula 1).
By car about 20 minutes from the nearest motorway exit (A1, Wisskirchen, Schleiden, Kall).
For the last three km you will drive on forest trails (obvious with a forester's house) with the usual bumps and potholes. It does not mean that you need a SUV - even in winter - but a sports car with a lowered chassis will make that ride a real challenge.
Driving time to Cologne / Bonn Airport: 1 hour.
Kall is on the railway line between Cologne and Trier.

About 30 years ago, we moved from Cologne to the Wackerberg forest district in one of the most beautiful regions of the Eifel - now we look forward to our guests. For me as a veterinarian, Pets are always welcome!
