Have you never heard of this town? Don’t worry, I had not either until one day, browsing through Instagram, I stumbled upon pictures of this fairytale town. Full of traditional half timbered houses, winding cobblestone streets and picturesque bridges, I knew I had to see it for myself whenever I visited Germany.Monschau is located in western Germany, near the Belgian border. When we realized we had a few spare days in hand on our Belgium-Netherlands trip, it was the perfect opportunity to cross this one off my list! Monschau is located within the Eifel Nature Park and makes for a perfect day trip from Belgium, the Netherlands or Germany. We visited Monschau as part of our 2 week long road trip to Germany, Belgium and Netherlands – you can read more about our itinerary here.Monschau is one of Germany’s most fairytale like town and definitely one of its best kept secrets. Not many people know about this village except for Germans and locals from neighbouring countries (Belgium and Netherlands).
