The highlights of Monschau, the Pearl of the Eiffel


As you walk through the streets of Monschau, you immediately understand precisely why this picturesque village is called “The Pearl of the Eiffel”. It looks like you’re back in time over two hundred years, by the typical half-timbered houses that are in the village and the fairytale-like location. This beautiful town is located in the northern part of the Eiffel and very close to the Dutch and Belgian border. This makes Monschau ideal for a weekend getaway destination not too far from home. What are the highlights of Monschau in the Eiffel?

The best things to do in the Black Forest, Germany

zwarte woud

A very nice place in Germany to go on holiday is the Black Forest. The Black Forest is super large with more than 200 kilometers long and 60 kilometers wide. I think it is a very varied and beautiful region. The Black Forest is what you imagine with Germany in a travel guide: dense green forests, cool peaks with vast views and romantic valleys, small farms and beautiful lakes. I have been a midweek in the Black Forest and I want to recommend this region! It is beautiful, green and there is plenty of fun to do! What are the things you have to do in the Black Forest?

Visit Burg Eltz, a lovely castle at Germany

Burg eltz

Burg Eltz is one of Germany’s most magnificent castles. This castle is located in the Moselle region and is certainly worth a visit. The Burg Eltz castle in Germany is beautifully hidden amidst the woods on a steep hill. It is a very interesting building with 8 beautiful towers. This makes it look mysterious and it feels like entering a fairy tale.
