Dudeldorf Things to Do

  • Gondorf & The Eifelpark

    Eifelpark Gondorf is a small zoo/amusement park within just a few kilometers of Spangdahlem and Dudeldorf. It has a bunch of animals like eagles, bears, deer, wild cats, emus and more. It also has some pretty low-tech rides and other amusements such as a small roller coaster, an American Indian village (the "tipidorf!"), shows, and a water ride....

  • Gransdorf Village

    Another small farming village called Gransdorf, is near Gindorf, just a few kilometers north of Dudeldorf. This village is tiny and has nothing other than a few houses and some farms. The new autobahn passes through this region, and was constructed during my time in Germany.

  • Germany's Eifel Region

    The Eifel is a geographic area in Germany rather than an area defined by political boundaries. The Eifel occupies a large area of farms and forest north of the Mosel river between Luxembourg and Koblenz. The northern edge of the Eifel is south of Bonn. The Eifel has no major cities, and only a few mid-size towns such as Bitburg and Wittlich. Like...

  • Spangdahlem Village

    Spangdahlem Village is just east of Dudeldorf a few kilometers. This town is home to US Air Force's Spangdahlem Air Base. Somehow maintaining a hint of German charm, Spangdahlem is truly defined by the military presence over the last 60 years.We used to frequent an Irish Pub and a great little Italian restaurant here in town.

  • Landscheid

    As you drive east on German Route B-50 from Dudeldorf toward Wittlich, you will pass Landscheid. Then you will pass Landscheid. Then you will pass Landscheid. For the longest time, I could not figure out why the road kept entering and exiting the same town. Then I discovered there are three towns in a row, all named Landschied! People I knew in...

  • Bollendorf -- Schloss Weilerbach Gardens

    The beautiful gardens at Schloss Weilerbach are unique among the smaller castles in Germany. Typically only the large castles within major cities have gardens of this type. These gardens are fairly small, maybe 150 meters end-to-end with two fountains. On one end of the gardens is a small building with just one room. This is a small picnic...

    The main street through the center of old Dudeldorf is about 150 meters end-to-end. At the ends are a set of matching towers with arched gates, that form the only entrances through the old city walls. The arches are just wide enough for one car, and the street isn't much wider! On main street you will find a small bakery (backerie), a little...

    Dudeldorf castle was built in the 1800s, though another castle occupied this site as far back as 1052. The castle is just outside the city walls between Erdorf and Dudeldorf's old town. It's more of a mansion than a castle, but we take what we can get. During the summer, the castle gardens are open to the public.

    Pickließem is the closest village to Dudeldorf.

There, this village is called "pick-LEE-sem".

Dudeldorf Restaurants

  • Annie's Jaegerstubchen - Speicher

    In the village of Speicher, just a few km from Dudeldorf, is a tiny restaurant called Annie's Jaegerstubchen (roughly hunter's room). We came here as often as possible, because she served the best (maybe only) butterschnitzel around. This little old lady often ran the entire restaurant by herself, taking orders then going back to the kitchen to...

  • Torschanke

    I ate at Torschanke several times while in Dudeldorf since it was about one minute away by foot. There are two things I remember most from this bar and restaurant: The Bauernschnitzel (farmer's schnitzel) with a pile of fried potato wedges under a slab of fried pork under a fried egg. Delicious!The second unique thing is the the butter: They give...

Dudeldorf Nightlife

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nightlife in Dudeldorf is limited to a few quiet Gasthauses and Pensions where you can grab a beer and maybe a bite to eat. For a little more excitement head to Trier or Luxembourg where you can find all types of pubs, bars, live music and dancing. Luxembourg also has a nice modern movie theater on the edge of town called Utopolis Kirchberg which shows the latest American movie releases in English with German and French subtitles. We also made a habit of going to Frankfurt for the nightlife, especially the famous Sachsenhausen district.

    From Dudeldorf, Trier is about 30 minutes, Luxembourg is 45 minutes to 1 hour, and Frankfurt is about 2 hours.

    The closest real airport to Dudeldorf is the major international hub at Frankfurt. There is also a small airport called Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, that is closer to Dudeldorf, but has very limited airline options and destinations.

    In terms of number of passengers per year, Frankfurt is the 8th-largest airport in the world and number 2 in Europe. Frankfurt is also second in Europe in terms of cargo moved per year. Over 100 international airlines fly between Frankfurt and some 300 destinations, moving some 52 million passengers each year (8th busiest airport in the world).

    Frankfurt Airport is planning two huge expansions over the next few years including the Terminal 3 and cargo port project on the south side of the runway where the US Rhine Main Air Base used to sit, and a new parallel runway north of the Autobahn and S-Bahn Station.

    Frankfurt is in a superb location for travelers due to its easy access from the Autobahn, S-Bahn (regional and international trains) and its central location on the European continent.

    Favorite thing: Benediktiner Weissbier, originally brewed by Klosterbrauerei Ettal, is now brewed by Germany's Bitburger Brewery and exported around the world.

    The beer is a good, hearty hefeweizen, that pours a cloudy golden color with a thick head. The smell is a rich fruity, grainy aroma, and the taste is delicious.

    4 out of 5 stars
