"SPECTACULAR VALLEY & TOWN" Monschau by gkitzmil

Monschau Travel Guide: 35 reviews and 59 photos


Quaint, charming, relaxing, and more. Strolling through Monschau (Montjoie in French) takes you back many years. This is one place we loved so much we visited it a second time!


The Rur runs through this town and you can find many spots (some even secluded) to enjoy the water running by. Here at left you see the "red house" which is famous in Monschau but you also see the stream and if you look carefully an outside terrace.


While not one of the most spectacular castles it still gives you a wonderful view.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:tranquility, beauty, relaxation
  • Cons:a bit difficult to get to -- part of the charm

    Monschau is a lovely place, isn't it? I've been there earlier this year and hadn't heard of this town before.
