To the west is the Vulkaneifel Nature and Geopark, which stretches roughly from Ulmen in the east to Gerolstein in the west and from Wittlich in the south to Hillesheim in the north. The western part is part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks (Geopark Vulkaneifel), the eastern part (Laacher See) is not. Volcanoes were still active here about 10,000 years ago, which has shaped the landscape with numerous maars (e.g. the Daun maars), mineral and carbonic acid springs and lava flows. At around 700 m above sea level, the Ernstberg is the highest mountain in the nature park and the second highest in the entire Eifel after the Hohe Acht.

The High Fens-Eifel Nature Park is located in the area around the towns of Simmerath, Monschau, Roetgen, Stolberg and Langerwehe. In the middle of the nature park lies the former Vogelsang military training area and the extended area of the former Nazi Ordensburg Vogelsang on the Erpenscheid mountain. The southern part is called the Schnee-Eifel, where the Schwarzer Mann and the Wolfsschlucht are well-known ski resorts. In the northwest, the South Eifel borders here.
