The Eifel Region consists of plenty forested landscapes that are home to deer and wild boar as well as other game. Driving during the night may end suddenly when game jumps out into the road and every year hundreds of accidents, sometimes even fatal occur here. Hence take the foot of the gas and drive carefully – once you have hit a full grown deer your journey may have come to an end!
Gerolstein is famous because of the mineralwater they get out of the springs, you can found them in several places. We tasted the water of the fontain in the tourist-information. I thought it tasted like iron. We used the water to wash our hands during the walk around Gerolstein. You better buy bottles of Gerelsteiner water!
