The Eifel region is quite big from which I’ve only seen a small part. It’s not that far from my home town, only a 2,5 hour drive. The Eifel region has a diversity of landscapes and therefor it’s perfect for outdoor activities. Furthermore, you can find idyllic towns in the region next to a wide range of flora and fauna. In this article I’ll show you 10 travel photos which I’ve made during my time in the Eifel region. Enjoy!

Monschau is a small and idyllic town, located in the region of North Rhine-Westphalia and nearby the Belgian border. The town is one of the must visits when traveling to the Eifel, as it offers narrow alleys, beautiful half-timbered houses and is surrounded by green hills. You can read more about Monschau here.

Wildpark Hellenthal

The Wildpark in Hellenthal is a large park (more than 64 hectares) where they have created a habitat for lots of wild- and farm animals. You can also find a raptor center on the park. The park is located in a beautiful, natural area which gives a perfect impression of the magnificent landscapes of the Eifel region. You can have some nice walks through the area.

Dreimühlen Wasserfall
the Dreimühlen Wasserfall

Dreimühlen Wasserfall

The Dreimühlen Wasserfall is located at a driving distance of approximately 50 minutes from Hellenthal. Even on a rainy day (as we had), there were people walking around this nature reserve called Ahbachtal. It’s a beautiful environment where you can have a lovely walk. It’s nice to see the magnificent Dreimühlen Wasserfall from up close.

Einruhr
Eifelblick Wolfshügel in Einruhr

Einruhr – small Eifel town

During our time, we also decided to pay a quick visit to the small town of Einruhr. On the internet I found the spot ‘Eifelblick Wolfshügel’ where we wanted to hike to. It was just a small hike of approximately 20 minutes upwards after which we had a nice view over the area.


Hopefully I’ve inspired you with these photographs of the Eifel region. It’s a diverse and large region with a variety of landscapes and lots of beautiful places to visit.
