Nature Park Centre and Devil's Gorge
Shortly before the Luxembourg border, visitors to the Devil's Gorge can expect a true natural highlight. Less diabolical, but all the more impressive is the fascinating rock backdrop of 180 million years old sandstones. The Devil's Gorge can be explored on a small, approx. 1.8 km long tour. It's worth it! Attention - the paths in the Devil's Gorge are not barrier-free and require a certain fitness and surefootedness. The neighbouring nature park centre invites you to linger and scores with its nature exhibitions and action offers for nature-loving leisure guests. The dinosaur park is located in the immediate vicinity. www.teufelsschlucht.de
Cascade leisure pool in Bitburg

Trier, the oldest city in Germany
The city of Trier, about 40 kilometres away, boasts of being the "oldest city in Germany". Whether shopping or searching for Roman traces in the important Moselle city, a visit is definitely worthwhile! Many shops, a wide variety of gastronomy and important museums promise to make you feel at home.
City of Bitburg - more than just a beer town
A little smaller than the neighbouring Trier, but no less exciting is a visit to the district town of Bitburg. Many people know the small "Eifel metropolis" as a beer city. But there is more to discover! Many small shops often lure visitors with their individual offers somewhat off the beaten track of the well-known mainstream shops.
As a tip for families we recommend the GPS rally "Felicio - an Eifelmärchen". Thanks to a GPS device, you can find the individual stations of the fairy tale on site and thus find yourself in the middle of history. Tricky puzzles and tasks along the route guarantee fun for the whole family. GPS device and further tips are available from the Bitburger Land Tourist Information team.
Little Luxembourg Switzerland
If you would like to experience further beautiful hiking trails in neighbouring countries in addition to the premium hiking trails directly at the hotel, you will find them directly in Luxembourg on the border to Germany.
Countless hiking routes through the fascinating rocky landscape offer pure variety! The region bears the nickname "Little Switzerland" and is guaranteed to make hikers' hearts beat faster.
A visit to the small abbey town of Echternach on the border river Sauer also offers the opportunity to get a taste of Luxembourg's way of life and some consumer goods can be purchased at lower prices.
