At an on-site visit in the winter of 1997/98, a building in the back grounds of Blankenheim Castle in the Eifel that had previously been undefined by both the preservation of monuments and the preservation of monuments turned out to be a large-volume water reservoir. Clear sintered lime deposits on the inner walls of this cellar-like building undoubtedly allowed it to be used as a water container.

Castle Lissingen

The burg an der Kyll is a former moated castle, the roots of which go far back into the past. In contrast to almost all other Eifel castles, it has remained undestroyed in the course of its history and has thus preserved an impressive architectural heritage from the Gothic to the Renaissance, the Baroque and subsequent construction periods up to modern times. Its architecture was always oriented towards the landscape and water, as it was there that it drew its protection and its representative effect.

Irreler water falls


ca. 61 km

The blocks from the Ferschweiler Plateau usually tipped upside down and crashed down the slope, broke and finally remained in the river bed.

Prüm
Basilika


ca. 15 km

The city of Prüm owes its existence to a woman. Bertrada, a Franconian nobleman, founded a small monastery with monks from Echternach in the year 721 together with her son Charibert in the valley of the Prüm. Bertrada was most likely a daughter of Irminas von Oeren, who had built a monastery in Echternach for the missionary bishop Willibrord twenty years earlier. The small monastery in Prüm could not last long, because in 752 King Pippin founded a monastery again. To this end, he called Benedictine monks from St. Faron in Meaux near Paris. The king had married a granddaughter of Bertrada. She had the same name as her grandmother Bertrada - she was also called Berta - and is the mother of Charlemagne.
