Crossed by the Rur river and surrounded by the hills of North Eifel, Monschau (Montjoie in French) is a small village in western Germany, 2 kilometers away from the border with Belgium.
Its old maisons à colombages, its busy narrow streets, its finest art galleries and cosy gift shops full of handmade items make this resort town extremely picturesque.
In Christmas time the main squares of the village are taken up by small wooden houses, where you can have delicious glühwein and eierpunsch with cream to fight the freezing cold.
Here you have the impression that time stopped flowing by so long ago.
Here you have the feeling that the history of Europe will be kept untouched forever.
