Travel Tips for Monschau

Shopping and enjoying

by JosM

Monschau is a pittoresque little city in the Eifel National Park. It's a touristic centre for the region and a relief after a busy time at work, with very nice houses and monuments.

The homepage for the city of Monschau is Monschau´*. In autumn, with Halloween coming soon, carved pumpkins and witches are all over the city.

Felsenkeller Brauerei

by robertgaz

There's a couple of regional beers that are truly exceptional. It's been some time since I last had these but if you're passing through Monschau I well recommend them to you.

One of them is FelsQuell Pils which is a bitter and hoppy, yet very smooth pils.

The other one is Zwickelbier which is a dark unfiltered yeasty beer with a reputation of being very rich in vitamin B, supposedly giving you a beer without that dreaded hangover from a few too many.

Both beers make good use of the "soft" local springwater giving them a silky smooth finish.

I have also added another local specialty which is a blackcurrant liquer. A sweet tipple for those who like it a bit sticky.

Glass blowing in a hut

by Pavlik_NL

Monschau has a 2000 year old history of glass! This is something the citizens are very proud of and in the museum near the Burgau parking lot one can visit the museum. Here one also gives demonstrations in glass-blowing, producing plates, vazes, drinking glasses, bottles and more. After tat there is the polishing and – if necessary – the painting or decorating. The museum invites you the whole year through from 10:00 until 18:00 hours.

a little old town between German hills

by Agatho

Monschau (French: Montjoie) is a town in the west of Germany, located in the district Aachen, North Rhine-Westphalia.

Above the city is the castle Monschau, which dates back to the 13th century — in 1198 the first mention of Monschau was made. Starting in 1433 the castle was used as a seat of the dukes of Jülich. In 1543 Emperor Charles V besieged it as part of the Geldern Feud, captured it and plundered the town. However the castle stayed with Jülich until 1609, then it became part of Palatinate-Neuburg.

In 1795 the French captured the area, and under the name Montjoie made it the capital of a canton of the Roer département. After the area became part of the Kingdom of Prussia in 1815, Monschau became the capital of a district, the Kreis Montjoie.

During World War I some people argued that Monschau, or as these people still called it Montjoie, should be annexed to Belgium since it was a historically Walloon area that had been Germanized by the Prussians.[1]

In 1918 William II, German Emperor, changed the name to Monschau.

In 1972 the town was enlarged with the previous independent municipalities Höfen, Imgenbroich, Kalterherberg, Konzen, Mützenich and Rohren.
