This nature park near the border between Germany and Belgium enchants visitors with its picturesque castles, splendid palaces and beautifully blooming wild daffodils.

The spectacular landscape of the Hohes Venn-Eifel Nature Park, which surrounds the Eifel National Park, features plenty of woodland, remarkable highland moors, dizzying mountain peaks, rivers and lakes. The best way to explore these stunning natural sights on display in North Rhine-Westphalia is on foot or by bike, with pretty pathways including the route following the former Vennbahn railway line and the nearby Eifelsteig Trail. Visitors are taken on a journey back in time as they explore the Stone Age caves, Roman buildings, and castles, palaces and abbeys. Spring is the perfect season for nature lovers to visit, as they will be able to enjoy guided tours of the daffodil fields.
