Vacation rentals in Eifel

Holidays in the countryside

The Eifel is a natural paradise that offers a large number of holiday apartments in all price ranges, especially for active holidaymakers and nature lovers. Enjoy the peace and quiet in cosy places like Hersdorf, Schleiden, Mayen, Nürburg near the world-famous Nordschleife or in Kerpen, the hometown of Fomel 1 world champion Michael Schuhmacher. Furthermore, you will live in an idyllic vacation rental in the Volcanic Eifel, because in places such as Mendig am Laacher See, Wittlich and Adenau you can reach monumental testimonies to the earth's history on foot, as well as shopping opportunities and restaurants.

A holiday apartment on the Moselle and Rhine rivers

With a vacation rental on the rivers Rhine and Mosel, which border the Eifel in the south and east, you have numerous options for holiday planning due to its convenient location. Holiday accommodations on the flanks of the slate cliffs are highly recommended, from where you have a breathtaking view of the vineyards and castles on the Rhine and Moselle. Well-known holiday resorts from where you can also set out on boat trips are Winningen, Treis-Karden, Cochem and Traben-Trarbach on the Moselle as well as Andernach, Bad Breisig, Sinzig and Remagen on the Rhine.

Holiday in Eifel

Location and orientation

Spatial structure of the Eifel region

The Eifel is a German low mountain range stretching from the Rhine in the east to Belgium and from the Moselle in the south to the Bay of Cologne. The Eifel is divided into several subregions that have their own characteristics. The Eifel is divided into the Rur-Eifel with the Rursee, the Ahr valley with the Ahr mountains, the Voreifel, the Schnee-Eifel and the Vulkaneifel. In particular, the snowy Eifel, which extends into Belgium, is characterised by its significantly higher peaks compared to the rest of the low mountain range. The highest mountain in the Eifel, the black man, is 692 metres high.

Dance on the volcano

As its name already indicates, the Volcanic Eifel occupies a special position because this region is characterized by strong volcanism. The contemplative Eifelmaare, as you will find them for example not far from your vacation rental in Mendig or Gerolstein, are nothing more than former volcanic craters filled with water. And that's not all. Because what few people in Germany know is that a large part of these volcanoes are still active and the Eifel is therefore one of the most volcanically active regions on the continent. You can observe these activities impressively by visiting Lake Laach, from whose depth gases still rise.

Travelers and Activities

The Eifel for culture lovers

The sparsely populated Eifel has a unique landscape and numerous cultural highlights to offer. First and foremost is the Nürburgring with the legendary Nordschleife, also known as the "Green Hell" and the scene of countless highlights in motorsport history. In addition, there are fortifications from the Middle Ages worth seeing such as Bürresheim Castle, the twin castles in Manderscheid, Kassel Castle near Gerolstein and the exceptionally well-preserved Eltz Castle. The cultural programme is rounded off by the Rhineland Open Air Museum near Kommern, the Ardennes Centre near Losheim and the Eifelzoo in Pronsfeld.

Cycling in the Eifel region

Thanks to its varied topography and its location between two picturesque rivers, the Eifel is an ideal holiday region for cyclists because the well-developed network of cycle routes offers tours for everyone. The Eifel Heights Route, the Kylltal Cycle Route, the Maare-Mosel Cycle Route and the Ahr Cycle Route are particularly recommendable. For a more relaxed approach, choose a route directly on the banks of the Rhine and Moselle and perhaps even visit the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz. If you want to fully enjoy the up and down landscape through the low mountain range, you can of course also change to one of the numerous e-bikes, which can be rented locally at favourable conditions.

The Lake Laach volcano in the Eastern Eifel last erupted about 11,000 years ago.

Through the Green Hell at high speed

In the middle of it instead of only thereby it is called with a journey with the ring taxi. Step into the cockpit of a BMW M3 Competition, Porsche 911 GT3, Audi R8 V10 Plus or Porsche Turbo S as a co-driver and let a professional racing driver chauffeur you through the curves and chicanes of the Nordschleife at breakneck speed. 73 curves and 21 kilometres of pure adrenalin await you.

Visiting the Eifelpark

With the Eifelpark the low mountain range has a family attraction of the special class. While young and old adventurers dare to go on the roller coaster "Eifel-Blitz" or "Captain Jack's Wild Mouse", the "Pony Express", the big pedal boat lake, the milking competition or the dredging school are more relaxed. In addition to numerous shows, playgrounds and a treasure hunt, animal lovers will also find a zoo with wolves, bears, kangaroos and lynxes.

Culinary specialities from the Eifel region

The hearty cuisine of the Eifel reflects the character of the low mountain range. To enjoy specialities such as sauerkraut stew, white beans and Bonne sausages, sponge cake croissants or traditional flour dumplings with forest berries (cuddly pastries), you should visit one of the small restaurants.

In close contact with a real volcano

You already know that your vacation rental is most probably in the middle of a volcano. A visit to the Lava Dome volcano museum in Mendig, however, can bring you particularly close to the fiery giants. In addition to the 700 square metre exhibition area, where you can learn all you need to know about the fire mountains, the museum also has a real lava cellar that you can explore with your helmet on.

"One bit, please."

A visit to the Bitburg brand experience world is a highlight for beer drinkers, because nowhere do you get as close to beer with Germany's most famous slogan as in Bitburg. Let yourself be carried away into the world of beer on over 1,700 square metres and stock up in the Bitburger Shop with exclusive souvenirs that you can't buy anywhere else.
