Not everyone knows, that on the border of Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium there is a fantastic region of the Eifel, the western part of the Rhine Slate mountains (up to 747 m high).
Idyllic mountain and river landscapes, untouched nature of the average-German plateau, picturesque wine making regions, medieval towns and romantic castles give the special originality to this reserved zone.
This trip is for those, who want to see the refined nature of Germany, the massifs of volcanic mountains, divided by deep valleys of the rivers Rhine, Moselle, Lahn, Nahe: rare for today's Europe beech and fir forests, the places, where the sources of the Gerolsteiner mineral water beat out of the ground, and brewers brew Bitburger beer.
We recommend this travel, first of all, those, who want to have a rest from the prompt city life and to feel a variety of faces of Europe.
In the program of our one-day excursion: The RHINELAND MUSEUM UNDER THE OPEN SKY is the real immersion in medieval life and livelihoods of country people of the Prussian province at the end of the 15th century.

We will go along the ancient rural small streets from lodge to a lodge, receiving particulars of medieval life of the German peasants, and we will appear in the most interesting museum of the history, Rhineland- the Rhine region, which is called the heart of Germany. In addition, it is the most unusual wax museum in Europe. The fascinating excursion expects you inside, the characters, who made history, are recreated in the form of waxworks in the museum: Napoleon, Prussian kings, Karl Marx, industrialist Krupp and many others. Where will you have an opportunity to bring home photos with the French emperor or the author of "Capital"?
The resort town Bad Muenstereifel is a heavenly spot at the Foothills of Eifel, which harmoniously fits a surrounding natural landscape. Thousand-year history of the city stores legends and myths, which you will be told by the guide, showing the most beautiful facades of half-timbered houses, an ancient town hall in Central Germany with unique "pillory". A thousand-year fortification, ancient churches, the destroyed castle, the crystal rivulet Erft, the fountain with the image of the Zwentibold King of Lotharingia, and, of course, cozy cafes and small restaurants with typical German cuisine, nourishing and tasty - all this is Bad Muenstereifel.
