    Don't forget the wonderful surroundings.

    Monschau is beautiful, but in combination with the great green nature surrounding it, it is even better. Take the footpath behind the little chapel at the entrance of the village. It winds up and up into the mountains and includes perfect views on the Burg (castle) and town. The rest outside the touristic masses is also welcome, especially when you don't like that kind of tourism.

    Also included in Monschau ... forestwalks ...

    National Eifel Park - Nature - let it be !!

    by Luchonda Written Dec 26, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Majestic beech forests, gnarled oaks and wild brooks - these are the hallmarks of the Eifel National Park
    On the theme of „Nature – Letting it Be“, it has been decided that nature shall not be put to any economic uses whatsoever within the park. Where woodcutting was once common, wild and original forests are now allowed to spring up again
    In this landscape of forest and water, the visitor can experience breathtaking views of the Urftsee and Rursee lakes.
    Nature lovers and explorers will find many ways of enjoying this panorama of forest, water and wilderness. You may follow the call of the black woodpecker at your own pace or rely on a competent guide.

    getting there is already soothing for the stressed mind and body.
    wee Farms along the way and through the beautiful german Forrest, just get out of the car and stretch your legs, a stroll in the Forest, relax body and mind

    no hustle and no hassles, just relaxed driving through the countryside. but be aware, unlike the Autobahn, there is a speedlimit on countryside roads, 80km/h..
    a picnic and a walk, that's what I like anyway

    At the entrance of the city one can see this remarkable collection of "puppets" in a grassland near the road.

    It's just a beautiful lttle village that seems a bit lost in time... and nothing seems to go fast. Certainly visit for a day and a night if you have a chance!
