    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.

    This temporary figure is standing in front of the Registry Office. I do not think he has anything to do with Marriages which are what gets registered here. The building is also known as the Haus Troistorff, built by a cloth merchant in1783. There were similar horses all over Aachen when we went there. This is the week of the International Jumping Competitions in Aachen (CHIOS , whatever that signifies). Our caretakers are horse freaks and train and ride such animals. They were thrilled to find such an outlet for their energies and left us in Aachen one day and Monschau another while they cheered for the US Teams. This area is horse country and we stopped at several horse farms and stables all richly established and filled with students,etc.

    Monschauer Weihnachts/Christmas-market

    Traditional German Weihnachts / Christmas market. A festival that here is extra traditional as chances of snow are here considerably bigger then in the towns in the Ruhr-area.
