Medieval Monschau 2019

Monschau is the cultural centre of the Eifel mountain region and one of the most popular locations in the area. Its romantic half-timbered houses sit within ancient walls in an idyllic medieval town. This charming picture-postcard town is simply breathtaking and it is here that our hotel is located.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Bad Münstereifel & Monschau
We spend this morning driving through the picturesque Eifel National Park, where the remote countryside is amazingly unspoilt and is one of
the most beautiful areas in Western Germany. Our journey takes us to the romantic town of Bad Münstereifel where we spend time at leisure enjoying the charming town centre with its half- timbered buildings and views of the area. We return to Monschau in the afternoon with free time to explore at our own pace.

Day 3 Aachen & Valkenburg
Our excursion today will cover both Germany and Holland. Our first destination is Aachen, ancient capital of the Frankish Empire. We enjoy a 2 hour guided walking tour here, viewing the impressive sights of this historic city. Later, we cross the border into Holland to pay a visit to the beautiful town of Valkenburg, with its famous caves hewn into the rock creating a magical atmosphere. We have time here to wander around the medieval town to view the ancient walls and buildings before returning to our hotel.

Day 4 Eifel National Park & Ahr valley
This morning, we head to the northern part of the Eifel National Park and to its largest lake, the tranquil Rursee. We enjoy a boat ride, travelling the length of the lake. We continue to the Ahr valley, one of Germany’s most prominent wine growing regions and the historic resort town of Ahweiler for some free time, followed by a visit to the cellar, wine museum and a tasting of 4 wines in Mayschoss.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast we begin our journey home.
