Monschau

The city originated around 1195. The name comes from the castle situated on a mountain above the nearby Rur River. It is interesting that this city had a few different ways how it was called. First, it was Mons Ioci. Afterward, it became known as Munioie. Finally, for the longest period, it was Monjoje, which was for about 700 years. The name, which we know now – Monschau – is official only since the World War I when it was Germanized.

The city has a lot of half-timbered houses, which are well preserved and nearly untouched for 300 years. This makes this town quite a popular tourist attraction nowadays.

About P.

He is a friendly, but grumpy old man in a body of the 25 year old guy. If he is staying too long in one place, he starts to grumble that it is time to move, see other things. When he is finally on a move, he’s grumbling non-stop about that he has to move. The strangest thing in this behavior is that he does it with the smile on his face and constantly repeats that no one cheers him up more, than he himself. So, when you hear, or read that he enjoyed, or was astonished by a city, or beautiful nature’s spot – don’t consider if you should, or should not visit that place. You HAVE to go there.
