    Weeze Airport

    Antoniuskirche and Ryanair taking off from Weeze

    Favorite thing: Weeze airport is just one village and a few kilometres away from Kevelaer. In case you need a place to stay near the airport, there is more or less nothing in Weeze itself but next-door Kevelaer has much more to offer, both in terms of things to see and also accommodation and restaurants – a place that receives hundred thousands of visitors per year provides everything you’ll need. However, on the big catholic holidays, especially those of the Virgin Mary, finding a place to stay in Kevelaer may be difficult.

    Pronunciation of the name

    by Kathrin_E Written Aug 27, 2009

    Favorite thing: “Keh-ve-lahr” is the correct pronunciation. In this case the “ae” does not mark an Umlaut, as it usually does in German, but the extra e serves to prolong the “a” sound – a particularity of the dialects on the lower Rhine and in Westphalia which are closely related to the Dutch language. (Most Germans from other regions are confused by this, too.)
