Die Schiefergruben "Bausberg" I und II in Kehrig

Until a few decades ago, slate mining dominated large parts of our region as far as the Moselle. The population of the local church Kehrig lived to a large extent from the work in the resident slate mines Bausberg I and Bausberg II.
Even today, the many shining slate roofs, especially in the villages of the eastern Eifel, and the Mayen-based, national school for roofing craftsmanship prove this tradition.

Half-timbered village Monreal

The narrow streets of Monreal, its quaint Holy Trinity Church, the massive Nepomuk Bridge over the clear flowing Elzbach and the ruins of Löwenburg and Philippsburg castles high above the town are a perfect destination for an excursion in the eastern Eifel. The red and white half-timbered houses nestle closely together in the former cloth-making town. Not only visually is Monreal an excursion destination that relaxes the soul. Café Plüsch with its cosy interior, the Old Rectory with its sunny terrace on the banks of the stream or the former signal box at the gates of the town are perfect addresses for foodies. The highlight for lovers of handicrafts is the pottery in the old school. Hikers get their money's worth on the Monrealer Ritterschlag hiking trail and are rewarded for the sometimes steep passages with wonderful views.
