Little German Towns

This weekend, I went on a road trip with a few friends and came across a few lovely little German towns and villages that I hadn't heard of before, but absolutely loved. I thought I'd share them with you, along with some information and a few photos!


Koblenz is situated roughly halfway between Frankfurt and Bonn. Unfortunately, it was raining quite hard when we were there so we didn't get to see as much as we would have liked, but from what I did see, it's a really impressive place. There's the usual shops and restaurants, a small palace with gardens, and of course 'German corner' which is where two rivers meet and has a very impressive monument nearby.

There's also a sweet little church, and cable cars up to a big castle-type building on the other side of the river (which unfortunately we didn't have time to go to so I can't tell you what it's like!).

Bad Munstereifel

Bad Munstereifel is a picturesque town not far from Bonn. It has lots of lovely shops and places to eat, and really pretty architecture. You could easily spend the day here pottering around, particularly if you're a chocolate lover as there's both a Lindt and a Milka shop! 

We had flammkuchen for lunch in a quaint Italian-style restaurant, and then spent an hour or so wandering around. It's not a massive place, but it's beautiful and well-kept.

Limburg an der Lahn

Limburg is definitely worth a stop if you happen to be travelling nearby. It has a gorgeous old-town set on a hill, with plenty of shops and restaurants in colourful, crooked old buildings. At the top of the hill is a huge church, which is very peaceful inside and has great views of the valley from the outside!

We didn't stay here for long as it was just a break-spot on our way home to Mannheim, but it was a perfect traditional little German town and I'd love to go back for a day trip at some point.
