In the middle of the Eifel National Park, you’ll find the 100 hectare site of the former National Socialist “Ordensburg” fortress called Vogelsang. After the Second World War, it became a training ground for British, and then Belgian, troops.
Since it was opened in 2006 as a model project, “Vogelsang IP | International Place”, the site has developed into a multi-layered, international culture and education centre, a place of learning outside the classroom and an unusual event and conference location.

In September 2016, the new visitor’s and exhibition centre, the Forum Vogelsang IP, was opened. The two main exhibitions are the documentation of the National Socialist period, “Destiny: Master Race. National Socialist Ordensburgen - Both Fascination and Crime” and the adventure exhibition “Wilderness Dreams” organised by the Eifel National Park Centre.

The new Vogelsang IP Forum also has a seminar and conference centre, a restaurant with an unusual view of the landscape, and a viewing platform on the 48 metre-high historic tower.

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.
