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.

Vacation in North Rhine-Westphalia

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.

Travelers and Activities

North Rhine-Westphalia for active holidaymakers

If you want to spend your holiday actively, you will feel at home in your vacation rental in North Rhine-Westphalia. The existence of more than 7,000 kilometres of perfectly paved and signposted cycle paths alone speaks for itself. In addition, there are countless hiking trails through the beauty of the river and mountain landscapes. Especially the Sauerland and the Rothaargebirge invite you to go skiing and snowshoeing in winter. And if you don't want to miss out on a ski run in summer, you can visit the Skihalle in Neuss or the Alpincenter in Bottrop.

Rich and varied cultural offer

Culture lovers in North Rhine-Westphalia can look forward to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These include Cologne Cathedral, the Zollverein colliery in Essen, the Carolingian Westwerk in Höxter, the castles of Augustusburg and Falkenlust and Aachen Cathedral, which Charlemagne had built in the 8th century. Other sights include the Hermann Monument near Detmold, the ZOOM World of Experience in Gelsenkirchen and the German Mining Museum in Bochum.

When driving on the B258 through NRW, you cross the German-Belgian border six times within a few hundred metres.

Top 3 travel tips

Culinary specialities

North Rhine-Westphalia's cuisine is characterised by its down-to-earthness and is characterised by hearty home cooking. Anyone moving into a holiday apartment in Westphalia should definitely try Westphalian ham on pumpernickel. If, on the other hand, you descend in the Rhineland, you cannot avoid the Rhineland Sauerbraten. What all regions have in common is the large selection of different types of beer. For beer lovers, North Rhine-Westphalia is definitely an Eldorado.

Fun and action at Phantasialand

The amusement park is known far beyond the borders of Germany and is one of the biggest attractions of the federal state. Between fast-paced roller coasters, action-packed whitewater rides, colourful shows and a varied culinary offer, young and old get their money's worth at Phantasialand in Brühl.

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. Become part of the Rhenish cheerfulness and visit the colourful parades in Cologne, Düsseldorf and Aachen. However, you should book your apartment in the carnival strongholds as early as possible.
