Forests, Castles and Quaint Villages Built on Volcanic Foundations

Situated in Germany and bordering Luxembourg and Belgium, the Eifel region supplies remote forests, picturesque valleys and remnants of a prehistoric volcanic landscape. It runs as far south as The Moselle River and east until the Rhine.

A big feature of the northern part of this region is the Eifel National Park. Nature lovers, cyclists and cross country skiers will love the many paths zigzagging through the dense forests and past glistening lakes.

There are many castles in the region to please the history buffs. Medieval castles such as Lissingen Castle, with its surrounding moat, and Eltz Castle are fine examples that have never been destroyed. The ruinous castles in Manderscheid showcase the ruthless side of history.

The quaint fairy tale village of Monschau, with its well-preserved wooden buildings, is like an open-air museum of how life was 300 years ago.

In contrast to the historical and natural beauty of yesteryear is a modern addition that attracts a completely different visitor. Petrol heads can gather together at the demanding Nürburgring racetrack, which hosts the Formula One Grand Prix every second year and other motorsports events.

Booking.com has a large range of accommodation options in the Eifel region. Holiday homes, villas and guest houses are popular for that family getaway or there are many hotels and apartments at reasonable prices.
