This nature park near Germany's border with Belgium delights visitors with its romantic castles, magnificent palaces and countless wild daffodils that bloom every spring.
The spectacular landscape of the Hohes Venn-Eifel Nature Park, which surrounds the Eifel National Park, is characterised by large expanses of forest and water, highland moors and mountain ridges. The countless rivers and lakes and the colourful array of plants and animals give the park a charm of its own.
Designated train stations for walkers and cyclists
A good way to get to know this impressive landscape in North Rhine-Westphalia is a discovery tour on foot or by bike. You'll find particularly scenic routes along the former Vennbahn railway or on the nearby Eifelsteig Trail. Designated train stations for walkers and cyclists are an ideal starting point for these routes.
Stone Age caves and abbey walls
Take a step back in time and discover Stone Age caves and monuments from Roman times. With over 100 castles, palaces and abbeys to choose from, you won't know where to start! But as good a place as any would be the open-air museum at Kommern, which features more than 60 buildings from different parts of the Rhineland.
A carpet of spring blooms
A must for horticultural fans are the guided tours in spring to see the daffodils in bloom. Thanks to the Accessible Eifel initiative, people with restricted mobility can also explore the park.
