Vacation rentals in North Rhine-Westphalia

An apartment in the city

The largest federal state in the Federal Republic of Germany is characterised by its large number of major cities, where you can choose from a wide range of accommodation in all price categories. Thanks to their wide range of cultural activities, the modern apartments and apartments are particularly popular in the metropolises of Cologne, Düsseldorf, Bonn, Wuppertal, Paderborn and Dortmund. But also the university town of Münster and the imperial city of Aachen with its worth seeing old town are worthwhile holiday destinations.

Contrast programme in the countryside

If you like it a little quieter, pitch your tents outside the urban centres and move into a vacation rental or apartment in the Eifel, Münsterland or Rothaargebirge. In smaller towns such as Detmold, Winterberg or Monschau you live in the immediate vicinity of unspoilt nature, making these places ideal for a hiking or cycling holiday.

Location and orientation

The federal state with many faces

Germany's most populous federal state is subdivided into numerous regions, which differ enormously from one another in terms of landscape and accordingly all radiate their very own charm. From the volcanically shaped Eifel in the south to the picturesque Rhine Valley in the Cologne Bay to the Teutoburg Forest in the East Westphalia-Lippe region, NRW shows many faces. This not only leaves you spoilt for choice when choosing your holiday destination, but also definitely speaks in favour of paying the state another visit.

Visiting the Rhenish Carnival

The carnival is, next to the Oktoberfest, probably the largest folk festival in Germany and attracts countless tourists to the metropolises on the Rhine every year.
