Oude binnenstad Monschau - From Binnenstad Monschau, Germany
Monschau is a beautiful village beneath the Rur River surrounded by green hills. The historic center of the city is the Oude Binnenstad area, a medieval center with quaint cobblestone streets and classic timber-framed houses. The area is full of small family-run shops and cafes, perfect for a day of exploring and discovering hidden gems. A highlight of the area is the grand baroque castle, Reichsburg Monschau Castle, which dates back centuries and overlooks the old town below. The beautiful, hillside chapel of St Mary’s is also worth visiting, even if just for the spectacular views of the valley below. For travelers looking for a longer stay, walking trails and bike paths stretch the valley and make for a great way to explore the area. Spend your days exploring the history of the town and nights in the cozy cafes with a glass of beer. Monschau is an ideal spot to relax amongst postcard-perfect scenery.
