Monastery Route


Share content:

The imposing rocks of the Ehrensteinsley, the wild, romantic Rur valley, stretches of forest full of wild species, wide meadow landscapes with rows of old beech trees and whitethorn hedgerows and the Perlenbachtal dam offer beautiful landscapes for you to enjoy. One insider tip is the narcissus slope, which turns into a sea of flowers during the spring. Cultural highlights along the way: Kloster Reichenstein monastery with a waterlily pond, the Norbertuskapelle chapel and the many places of interest in the clothweaving town of Monschau.
