The German town Monschau so quaint it feels like a theme park — complete with a 13th century castle. The town is located in the hills of the North Eifel, within the Hohes Venn – Eifel Nature Park in the narrow valley of the Rur river. The historic town center has many preserved half-timbered houses and narrow streets have remained nearly unchanged for 300 years, making the town a popular tourist attraction nowadays. The region Eifel - a manifold landscape of low mountains with isolated forests, volcanoes that have become extinct, extensive hill countries and picturesque valleys - is situated in the triangle where three countries meet, that is Germany, Belgium and Luxemburg.

Monschau -Germany with its historical Old Town and unique location amidst the famous hedges and impressive scenery of the surrounding Eifel region. Viewpoint from the hillside of the Haller Ruine. above the town. Originally it was built as a fortress, but after years and nobody took care of it. It became a ruin and no one can get inside it. You can only walk around it. From the Haller Ruin you can also see Monschau Castle and also the other side of the city.

Monschau is een kleine historische stad in de Duitse Eifel. Het ligt in de smalle en diepe vallei van de Roer, op vier kilometer van de Belgische grens. Gebouwd tussen de heuvels, heeft dit plaatsje met zijn vakwerkhuisjes en kleine winkelstraatjes een nostalgische aanblik. Men vindt er veel bezienswaardigheden. In het voorjaar is het erg de moeite waard om deze omgeving eens te bezoeken. De natuur ontwaakt en er kan weer volop gewandeld en gefietst worden. Ook voor de motorrijders is het bochtenparadijs weer geopend. In het de lente is het heerlijk ontspannen in de Eifel. Het vakantiegebied -een gevarieerd middelgebergtelandschap met eenzame bossen, dode vulkanen, uitgestrekte heuvellandschappen en pittoreske valleien- ligt in de drielandenhoek Duitsland-België-Luxemburg.
