Attractions

The Neanderthals, the Celts, the Romans... their traces can still be followed in the Eifel today. On hiking routes or museum guided tours, the relics have been preserved and can still be seen in many places.


Other attractions are entire towns, municipalities or villages, such as Mayen in the East Eifel with its Genoveva castle, which is now the centre of many cultural events, or the clothmaking town of Monschau in the Eifel National Park with its “Red House”, and the numerous museums or the “historic mustard mill”.

Bitburg, with its art of brewing, has become famous far beyond the region, as has Gerolstein with its mineral water.


Half-timbered buildings, old town fortifications, some of which visitors can walk along, such as in Hillesheim or Bad Münstereifel, proud castles and dreamy palaces are further witnesses to history which can be experienced at first hand in the Eifel.


The range of museums in the Eifel is as varied as the region’s history itself. Visitors can find out about the settlement history of the Eifel, but also about the volcanicity and geology of the region, such as in the museums in Daun, Mendig and Manderscheid.
