Eifel is situated in the eastern part of the Eifel-Ardennes Mountains. It is north of the Mosel and west of the Rhine. The largest part is in Germany, but a small portion is located in Belgium, in the East Cantons. The German part of the Eifel is in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. The highest point is the Hohe Acht at 747 meters. Schönecken has its own outdoor swimming pool and a large play area. 10 km away, in Prüm, there is an indoor pool. Other trips are possible in this region depending on your interests. For example, you can visit the baptismal font in the Losheim Museum on the German-Belgian border, the towns of Prüm and Gerolstein or even the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The Eifel Zoo in Lünebach is situated in the midst of a beautiful landscape. In addition to the many animals, such as bears, tigers, lions, etc., you will also find a collection of tropical trees and plants. There is even a farm for children. For hikers and cyclists there is a broad network of routes which wind their way past the Volcanic Eifel and offer various levels of difficulty. You can also go mountain biking through the beautiful nature. Some of these routes were laid out for the Eifel Tour in Birresborn. In Kasselburg, in the Pelm region, between the old walls of the Stauffenburg castle square, which dates from the 12th century, you can visit the Adler and Wolf Park where you can admire soaring eagles, circling vultures, hawks, falcons, owls and even howling wolves! Moreover, in the Wolfsschlucht (wolf ravine) in the forests around Kasselburg lives the largest wolf pack in Western Europe. In short, this is a comfortable and centrally located accommodation with many possibilities!
