About the Eifel Region
This culturally rich area is home to more than 200 dormant volcanoes, ancient fossils and rock formations, as well as crater lakes open for swimming in the warm months. There are a plethora of ruins including the Nurburg and Manderscheid Castles, along with rebuilds and beautifully restored castles, all of which are open for visitors.
Calling all racers. This is the vacation spot for you. The Nurburgring was originally opened in 1927 and is one of the premier racing locations in Europe, long lauded as the most beautiful circuit in the world. The great thing about this attraction is that visitors can both watch the racers and visit on a training day to hit the course themselves. Workshops are available using either on-site cars (or your own) to teach you to race the track like the pros. Drift classes are also available. See their website for more details: http://www.nuerburgring.de/en/home.html.
Historians and outdoors people should check out the Eifel Aqueduct. Originally built by the Romans in AD 80, the aqueduct once carried water 60 miles from the Eifel region to what is now Cologne. Visitors today hike the aqueduct. Since it’s so long, you can hop on and off the track at almost any point. There are service stations, restaurants, and quaint little villages to explore up and down the aqueduct. See their website for more details: http://www.roemerkanal-wanderweg.de/index.php?id=2.
