Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in a beautiful small village called Abenden in the "Nationalpark Eifel" in a climatic spa, that means we live where others holiday.
Although it is very rural, we don't have to abstain from anything. There are two restaurants and an open air swimming pool in our village and only in 5 km distance in Nideggen you find bakeries, cafes, an ice cream parlor, about 5 restaurants, doctors, a dentist, some supermakets and a beautiful historic center with an old castle.

Within 20 km also the cultur isn't missed out. There are indoor and ourdoor swimming pools, a cinema, shopping, a museum, concerts ans more.

If you want more you can go to Cologne, Aachen or Düsseldorf for all attractions of a big city like concerts, museums, theaters, musicals, shopping, zoo and leisure park.

Or you find special places like Monschau with a glassblowing factory, mustard mill, a track motor car, in summer the open air classics (famous all around) and a fantastic historic center.
