Roman Thermea Zülpich – Museum der Badekultur (Museum of Bathing Culture),


How about a cultural wave ride through 2,000 years of the history of bathing?
The Romans loved wellness, combined with sociability and conversation. Body care and hygiene were an absolute must, and a visit to the thermal spa was simply a part of everyday life. It was no different in Zülpich. Its luxurious Roman baths have remained particularly well preserved to this day and a modern museum with a permanent exhibition has been built over them. Modern technology and high-quality replicas breathe new life into the ancient walls and the original findings. The objects on display range from original Roman toilet articles to the facilities found in a medieval bathroom, curious inventions of recent centuries up to modern day beach fashion and contemporary bathroom design. There are also changing special exhibitions and events.

The ancient town of Zülpich was a settlement along the Roman road from Trier to Cologne and is now part of the Via Agrippa, a cycle and hiking trail in “Erlebnisraum Römerstraße” (Roman Road Adventure Experience).

Radfahrer an der Erftquelle


The "Erft" rises in the small village of Holzmülheim, directly below the Himberg. It flows from here in the direction of Bad Münstereifel until it flows into the Rhine after about 100 km near Neuss. The spring was framed with natural stones by the village community. There is also a small statue of St. John Nepomuk, who is venerated as a bridge saint and is supposed to protect against water hazards. In the immediate vicinity is a playground, where there are also barbecue facilities and a lawn for sunbathing. At events at the spring, there is the possibility of being baptised in the Erft and receiving the title of "Erft cadet".

Radioteleskop Effelsberg

With a diameter of 100 metres, the Radio Telescope Effelsberg is one of the largest fully mobile radio telescopes on earth.  Since its commissioning in 1972, the company has continuously worked on improving its technology (e. g. B. a new surface of the antenna dish, better receivers for high-quality data, extremely lownoise electronics) so that even today it is still considered one of the most modern telescopes in the world.

LVR-Industriemuseum/Tuchfabrik Müller

It is a journey back in time to the world of the cloth industry. In 1961, factory owner Kurt Müller closed the doors of his cloth factory in the Eifel, hoping to reopen it soon. This did not come true, but today visitors can take a unique tour of a factory where robust woollen fabrics and loden cloth were produced for many years. They are immersed in the world of dyeing and weaving and experience how some of the machines are brought back to life during a guided tour and how people used to work here.
