B&B Eifel

Are you still wondering where to go for your next vacation? Take a look at our B&B accommodations in Eifel. This region is located mostly in Germany on the border with Belgium. It has a fairytale-like landscape filled with extinct volcanic cones, green high plains, forests, clear lakes and mountain ridges.

B&B is short for bed and breakfast, meaning that by booking one of our accommodations in Eifel you will receive a private charming cottage with tasty treats in the morning made by your friendly landlords. Most of them allow pets and are equipped with stylish furniture, fridge, fireplace and a nice garden. They are in the middle of nature, far away from the noise and pollution of the big city.

The amazing wilderness of Eifel

Eifel has its own national park, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Eifel National Park was established in 2004 and covers 110 square kilometers. Thousands of endangered animal and plant species can be observed there. For example, rare species such as black stork, eagle owl and wildcat can be found in the Eifel National Park as an important refuge for their survival. Watch wildlife in its natural habitat in natural beech forests and enjoy fascinating panoramic views over the impressive lake landscape or across the open grasslands of the Dreiborn Plateau. In the southern part of the Eifel National Park, you can find spotted orchids. Around six million wild-growing, small daffodils form a large yellow carpet in the spring.

The park is filled with forests, stream valleys, plateaus, forest meadows made out of old ash trees, chestnuts, wild cherries and beech trees. Deep blue lakes and rivers, meandering streams and extensive reservoirs, as well as wooded mountain passes, leave their mark on the Nature Park. The many rivers and streams of the Eifel drain into the North Sea via the great rivers outside of the Eifel like the Rhine and the Meuse. A feature of the Eifel are its natural lakes of volcanic origin. The largest, the Laacher See, is a collapsed, water-filled caldera. The park is strictly protected against light pollution, meaning that you can see the night sky like never before. There is an observatory located in Vogelsang.

Apart from its valleys, the Eifel is a gently rolling plateau from which elongated mountain ridges and individual mountains rise. The only summit above 700 meters in Eifel is the Hohe Acht, however, many peaks reach heights of over 600 meters. On the edge of the Ferschweiler Plateau, rugged sandstone rock formations are building up, which have taken on bizarre shapes due to “wind and water” over the past millions of years. At the end of the last ice age, around 12,000 years, there was a gigantic rock falling at the edge of the plateau. A large sandstone block tipped out of the plateau wall and opened up a now 28-meter-deep rock crevice, which fascinates everyone who once walked through the “ Teufelsschlucht ”.

Volcanism in the Eifel started about 45 million years ago due to the strong stretching of the earth's crust during the formation of the Alps. Ulmener Maar - the youngest volcano in Germany is located here around 10,000 years ago. Although the volcanic activity has stopped for now, it is still active and waiting patiently to erupt again. More than 350 small and large volcanoes, maars, lava flows and countless mineral and carbonic acid sources could be found in the premises of the region. Most of them are located in the volcano park called Laacher See National Geopark.

Wake up, have breakfast and then...?

There is a red deer viewing point near Dreiborn, allowing you to spot red deer herd. But be quiet, because they get scared very easily. Take a hike in the forest and you might stumble upon some foxes, hedgehogs and squirrels. For the birdwatchers there is a Bird Watching Station at the Urftsee, so be sure to take your best binoculars. Here you can observe blackbirds, mountain finches, kingfishers, coots and many more, as well as some birds of prey like vultures, kites, hawks and eagles. Check out the observatory in Vogelsang with your family and have a unique chance to see the Milky Way in all of its beauty.

You can have a nice and quiet fishing trip in the numerous water zones filled with brown trout, perch, chub and many more. And if the heat from the sun gets too much take a swim in the cold waters. Or find a nice shady place and have a nice picnic afternoon with your loved ones. The adventure seekers can try motorbiking or rock climbing in the designated spots. If you want to explore more areas you should rent a bike and take one of the many cycling routes all around Eifel. At the end of the day, you can always open a cold beer and rest in the middle of nowhere without a single worry in the world.
