Half-timbered houses

Monschau often is called "the pearl of the Eifel region". The older part of the city has hardly been changed over the past 300 years.
The half-timbered houses are still plentyful throughout the city. These are characteristic for its looks. Most of them are protected by law.

    Looks like a medieval small town. Such a long time ago I was there. Should go back.
