Travel Series: Adenau

We took a cou­ple of days off our Reformation tour to stop and enjoy a beau­ti­ful part of Germany — the Eifel Mountains. We had heard it was a beau­ti­ful area, and of course the oth­er attrac­tion is that it is also the home of the Nurburgring, a 20km rac­ing cir­cuit, and also home to one of Germany’s grand prix tracks.

We stayed at the Ringvilla, a won­der­ful guest house in Adenau, it was a beau­ti­ful place to stay, right in the mid­dle of the moun­tains and with fan­tas­tic room and deli­cious break­fasts. We were quite sad that we could­n’t stay longer when we had to leave.

During the days we explored the region, includ­ing a some­what pre­car­i­ous jour­ney on the dirt tracks in the for­est around the Nurburgring (it’s ok, we did­n’t get our hire car bogged thanks to Chris’ supe­ri­or dri­ving skills). We enjoyed explor­ing, going on some hikes and even had lunch one day at a cas­tle! (the Kerpen Castle)

We man­aged to be around at the same time as a test­ing day on the Nurburgring (lots of car man­u­fac­tur­ers take their new mod­els there for test­ing), so Chris was able to get some great pics, very few of which are below.
