噼里啪啦The first time I went to the small town of Monschau in Monschau was the summer when I just arrived in Germany four years ago. When I came back with the same Humboldt green hat, I couldn't see the same scenery. It can be regarded as a revisit after another four years of life and university. There are places that I miss when I leave, but when I go back, I suddenly understand why I left. The mask control in Germany is indeed much stricter than that in the Netherlands. It’s just that you have to wear a mask when you enter McDonald’s, but you still have to take it off when you eat [Onlooker]
M32***23Eifel National Park covers an area so large that it can be regarded as the lung of the local city. The air is fresh and there are many tourists. Everyone is walking in an orderly manner with professional equipment. There are lakes and meadows in the distance, and the scenery is very rich!
FiveeI like this kind of elongated glass, and I have the feeling of crossing borders casually. After eating local pork blood sausage, only the fried onion of the whole dish is hard, and the others are muddy. It is disgusting if you eat it. It’s good to eat only sausage. It’s said that the German local soda is still delicious in SPA. OK, the conclusion is that aachen is nothing special, but a very comfortable city... I really feel familiar with international train transfers, so I won’t miss the train later. It would be very painful to stay in a country without a hotel reservation...
qf3456792Puppenbrunnen (Puppenbrunnen) is located on Chandler Street in Aachen, North Rhine-Westphalia. It is the connection between the cathedral and the city hall. It was created in 1975 by the Aachen sculptor Boni Stirnberg. Don't miss it when you get here!
Monschau is a town in western Germany, near the Belgian border. It’s known for its medieval center, with half-timbered houses and narrow cobblestone streets. Looming over the town, turreted Monschau Castle hosts open-air concerts. The Red House, the 1752 home of a wealthy cloth manufacturer, includes lavish period furnishings and a carved, winding oak staircase. Trails traverse nearby Eifel National Park.Vibrant activities within ancient walls, a medieval townscape with idyllic half-timbered houses, narrow streets and cobblestones.
Monschau is the cultural centre of an entire region and one of the most popular holiday and excursion destinations in the Eifel.
More than 350 kilometres of signposted trails to the right and the left of the Eifelsteig will lead you through paths of adventure, e.g., along the imposing beech hedges, to the blooming narcissi meadows and up through the Hohe Venn (High Fens), a raised bog that is absolutely unique in its kind within Europe. Hike in the Eifel National Park on the Wildnis Trail or at the side of a ranger. Would you prefer to ride a bicycle or quite comfortably with an eBike? Meander pleasantly on the new Vennbahn Cycle Route or through the Rur Riverbanks Cycle Route and the Eifel-Höhen Route that both pass through the middle of the Monschau Old Town.
Hundred thousand years ago the "Eifel" was made by large vulcans. Now the so called "Maare" (vulcano lakes) are unique and a beautiful place for a visit.

Europe is famous for it's Christmas Markets and none are better than those held in the beautiful city of Aachen, Germany. You get in the festive mood simply walking around enjoying the city. Such happy memories. #merrychristmas
In Germany, the history and tradition of eating roasted goose in Christmas is about 400 years old and is a traditional Christmas dish. Goose meat is a seasonal food in Germany and is basically consumed at Christmas. Many Chinese who have been in Germany for many years may not know this tradition. So, if you are in Germany in Christmas, be sure to go to a traditional German restaurant for Christmas and have a Christmas roast goose meal.
Recommend a GOLDENER SCHWAN in the Aachen Town Hall Square, a 600-year old traditional German restaurant. Generally speaking, the Christmas menu is a Christmas roast goose course. This menu is only available during Christmas. I used to specialize in the past but there is no seat. It is recommended to book in advance.
Roasted goose meal In addition to the mashed potatoes that Germans love, stained apples are also essential. Two large goose legs and unique pickled apples are oversized, so embarrassing to waste, and strong to eat.
Also eaten a goose meal in a restaurant in the Old Town of Dortmund. The restaurant is full of Christmas decorations and has a strong atmosphere. There are two types of Christmas menu, most of which are different from the body parts of the goose, with a special sauce, which is absolutely delicious.
Aachen's Christmas Market At the annual Advent, on the squares and streets around Aachen Cathedral, Germany's first UNESCO World Heritage Site, the air is filled with cheerful Christmas. The music is full of enticing aromas of food.
Aachen's Christmas market is one of the largest Christmas markets in Germany, with 1.5 million visitors coming here every year. Among the tourists in the Christmas market, people inadvertently hear various languages. Belgians and Dutch people are naturally the most common neighbors. Many British and French people also come here.
There are doll performances on the stage behind the town hall, attracting many children. Aachen Gingerbread is the biggest specialty here. The sweet biscuit, called Printen, is said to have a history of a thousand years, first invented by the Belgians, and later the Germans improved the formula to carry it forward.
As a special product of Aachen, people like to make it into a giant biscuit and place it in a striking place in the Christmas market. Merchants sell handicrafts in a new decorated cottage. I have compared some small items in Germany at half the price of the Netherlands. If you like it, you can buy it. Its an atmosphere for everyone.
