The station offers a large, catered station building built in 1997. Here the "Vulkanstube" tavern welcomes you before or after your trip with the "Vulkan-Expreß".

Until the mid-1970s, the rail line continued from here for about 6 km via Weibern to Kempenich. Unfortunately, this section was dismantled after decommissioning.


The village Engeln is part of the municipality Kempenich and is situated above the station on the slope of the Engelner Kopf hill. With about 200 inhabitants, it is contemplative here. With its location on the Eifel plateau, Engeln offers interesting opportunities for excursions in the area and is an ideal starting point for hikes and especially for low-gradient bike tours in the direction of the Ahr valley and the Moselle. After just a few meters on foot, you can enjoy great views.


Engeln is surrounded by the phonolite hills of the Schorberg, the Lehrenkopf and the Engelner Kopf. In contrast to the Schellkopf in Brenk, these mountains are not mined, but are part of nature reserves.

Sights around Engeln station

  • Geological garden at Engeln station

    The 1,000 m2 geological garden has been created directly in the vicinity of the station. On a circular route that starts on the platform, you will be guided through the different eras of earth's history. A special focus was placed on the volcanic past of the Eastern Eifel. Replicas of large prehistoric animals such as the Sauerier Iguanodon or a giant frog are also shown.

    For children in particular, the geological garden is also a highlight thanks to a small labyrinth of hornbeam hedges and the walk-in "volcano".

  • Viewpoint over Brohltal valley

    Only 300 m from the train station you can reach a beautiful viewpoint with a great view over Olbrück Castle, Bausenberg and the Brohl Valley to the Siebengebirge near Bonn. Here you can see the great difference in height you have overcome by train!


    After leaving the platform, cross the tracks over the level crossing and immediately turn right again to follow the paved path parallel to the geological garden. The path is signposted as "Osteifelweg". After about 300 m you have reached your destination.

  • Village Center Engeln

    In the middle of the 1990s, Engeln's old water pump, restored by the Engeln Community Association, was installed on the village square in the center of the village. With the help of this pump, the drinking water was pumped to Engeln from the springs in the Brenker district of Fußhölle, which is much lower.
