The Roman town of Zülpich is embedded into a mostly flat landscape with river meadows, the Nature Reserve, and Water Sports Lake “Zülpicher See”. The area offers great leisure opportunities for cyclists, hikers, and also for horseback riding enthusiasts.
Diverse cultural attractions in and around the historical town, like the Roman Thermal Bath, the Lake Park on the grounds of the State Garden Show 2014 (Landesgarten-schau 2014), the moated castle, manor houses, and the large-scale sculpture of Ulrich Rückriem, invite to explore.
Get to know the Roman Town of Zülpich, the Gate to the Eifel, and enjoy your stay characterized by culture, guest friendliness, relaxation, and recreational fun.
Due to the Lee effect behind the Eifel, Zülpich has one of the sunniest climates in Ger-many, with the exception of some Baltic See locations. The dissolution of clouds due to the plummeting air masses are cause for the lack of rain and warmth, as well as foehn weather conditions. We welcome you under the motto “4 Gates await you!”
Tourist information about Zülpich and the northern Eifel, can be found at the town hall or Roman Thermal Bath (Museum of Bathing Culture). Ideal starting and finishing points for hiking and cycling is the hike and cycle train station in Zülpich.
