Monschau preserves the magic of the old German cities with many half-timbered houses and narrow streets, which have remained nearly unchanged for 300 years. Located in the middle of the Eifel region of western Germany, in the narrow valley of the Rur River, the city of Monschau offers nature and culture and it is a popular destination for tourists.

It is impossible to make a prognostic, but average temperatures range from 8 °C during the night to usually 21 °C during the day. Please note that evenings and nights can be quite cool and that the average rainfall probability is about 30%. Remind to bring mosquito repellent, just in case.
