    Join today's included excursion to Monschau, a photographer’s paradise! Half-timbered façades overlook twisting streets, cobbled walkways and quaint market squares. The city originated around 1195 and takes its names from the castle situated on a mountain spur above the Rur River.

Monschau Christmas Market is small but beautiful.
