Beschreibung    Deutsch  ·  English

This is a series of caches about the Aachen-Frankfurter-Heerstraße (AFH), the military road the German Emperors used in order to get to Aachen for their crowning ceremony. Hence the name "Krönungsstraße", which translates to "crowning road".

The Via Regia has been the most important road connecting Aachen and Frankfurt from the times of Charlemagne to the late 19th century. After being elected in Frankfurt they travelled to Aachen for their crowning ceremony.Moreover, the road was used for trading or troop movements. From Düren to Sinzig it roughly follows today's motorway 61. This section is special, as it has the steepest inclines of the entire road. The impact on the landscape is visible up to date, although many sections have vanished due to land cosolidation. But on satellite photos the course is well visible.

General information:

With this series I will only cover the AFH in the region of Grafschaft, there are a number of information posts throughout the marked hiking trail. Additional information can be found on the internet, on the information posts and at local clubs devoted to regional traditions. The hinking trail has been marked by the "Eifelverein".Every cache station is designed as a short multi-stage cache with trails under 5 km. Of cource, you can hike the whole trail at once (about 11 km, one-way!); then, it might be best to start in Eckendorf, because the station fit together best. Please follow the hinking sign "AFH" (black font on white square).The trail follows dirt roads, so hiking or (mountain-)biking is no problem, nevertheless, strollers or wheelchairs may not do the whole route. Cars or motorcycles are not allowed. After a raining peroid the road might be very muddy.

MULTI STAGE (1.2 - 2.0 km, on track: 0.6 km)

At Eckendorf, the incline towards the highest point of the AFH begins. After having passed the Swistbach coming from Aachen, the trail follows today's border between Rhineland Palatine and Northrhine Westfalia.

Parking is difficult in Eckendorf, please try your luck at the main street, but do not park at WPEK01!

At the village's exit to Fritzdorf, you will find a small bench with the information sign (WPEK01). On the left-hand side are some dates in a timeline. The digit sum of the 3rd date is A, the one of the last date is B. On the right-hand side, a cross ("Weißes Kreuz") with a certain year (CDCD) is described. This years digit sum is E.

The final is located at:
North minus C0D, East plus (A+B)*E

Don't forget to note the Bonus number!
Enjoy the view, the AFH's route is right in front of you. Today, only a small depression in the field is visible. Your can head back to Eckendorf via RPEK01 and RPEK02 or via the route you came from.Nontheless, you can travel further on the trail to the station "Fritzdorfer Mühle". Simply follow the trail uphill, enjoy the view and the old trail to your right.
