The Celts, and after them the Romans, already felt at ease in the Eifel’s austere yet charming landscape. But it was not until the last century that the holiday potential of this wonderful and distinctive region was discovered. The deep blue volcanic lakes invite you to bathe. Sun soaked valleys entice you with their cycle paths and rambling trails. Rare plants and flowers fascinate visitors and locals alike. Rock formations in Germany’s largest contiguous volcanic region testify to our Earth’s history.
There was a good reason why the master of the Eifel crime thriller genre, Jacques Berndorf, chose this spectacular region as the centre of his own private life and as the backdrop for his gripping crime thrillers.
