The castle ruin and fortified settlement of Kronenburg Kronenburg Castle was one of the characteristic medieval hill-castles of the Eifel built on the spur of a ridge in the Upper Kyll Valley. The self-contained impression of the castle ruin, outer bailey and fortified settlement and their adaptation to the topography make the special charm of this site. Kronenburg was first mentioned in a charter of the Abbey Stablo Malmedy in 1277. Today the locality is a touristic attraction in the Upper Kyll Valley.

Dauerausstellung „Bestimmung Herrenmensch“ - NS-Dokumentation Vogelsang

The former NS-Ordensburg Vogelsang in today's Eifel National Park is one of the largest buildings of National Socialism and was a place of human contempt at that time. Today Vogelsang “Internationaler Platz” is a place that stands for tolerance, diversity and peaceful coexistence. But it is also a place of remembrance culture. The permanent exhibition “Purpose: Master Man. NS-Ordensburgen between fascination and crime ”gives an insight into the life at the NS-Ordensburg at that time.
