The rustic Eifel Museum, also home to the tourist information centre, is situated in the historical centre of the Blankenheim castle town, not far from the source of the Ahr. Here you can find out facts about the geological and natural history of the northwest Eifel. There are also inviting constantly changing exhibitions. The adjacent Gildehaus (Guild house), a half-timbered building from the Blankenheim drapers guild, also shows an exhibition on the territorial history of Blankenheim and the art exhibition of the painter Fritz von Wille. Next to the building is the information centre “VIA Roman road Adventure Region/ Agrippastraße-Via Belgica”
Take a walk of 800m from the Gildehaus to the Roman Villa, which is open to the public through a modern architectural draft. Near the Blankenheim Castle there are remains of the zoological tunnel, the Middle Age water pipes to the castle from 1468.
After your visit to the museum, explore the beautiful natural landscape in and around the castle town! You will find Blankenheim to be the perfect junction for enchanting cycle and hiking trails, for example the Ahr cycle route, Ahr and EifelSteig hiking trails.
