    Mayen is the gateway to and also right in the middle of the Eifel Region, Germany.

    It has a charming century old town square and there’s also Genovevaburg, a butter yellow castle on a hill overlooking it all.

    The Genoveva Castle towers over the city. It was built in 1291 by Heinrich von Finstingen in order to protect the town and houses today the Museum of the Eifel. You can climb up the 34 meters high Goloturm to have a great view over the town.

    Town Hall

    The Town Hall was erected in 1717, suffered a lot from Allied bombing and was rebuilt to its former splendour in the early 1950s. Highlight is the rectangular tower with the beautifully decorated clock.
    The market square in front of the Town Hall has always been centre of Mayen. In its centre is the Market Fountain, erected by Micheal Alken.

    Church of St. Clemens

    What an unusual church. Take a closer look on the spire and you notice that it has an uneven shape. The legend tells that the devil twisted the spire. But the fact is that during the construction strong winds made it almost impossible to built the heavy schist plates in an even form.

    The chruch is located in the centre of Mayen and is the landmark of the town.
