    A visit to Kronenburg is always worthwhile. From the castle you have a great view of the reservoir and the Hocheifel.

    Burg Kronenburg is a medieval hill fort typical of the Eifel region, built on a mountain spur above the Kyll.
    The closed picture of the ruined castle, outer bailey and fortified castle settlement and the integration into the grounds make up the special charm of the place. Kronenburg was first mentioned in 1277 in a document from the Stablo-Malmedy Abbey. Today the place is a tourist attraction in the Upper Kyll Valley.

    The "Eifel-Blick" are an initiative of the German-Belgian Nature Park
    and from Rureifel-Tourismus e. V .. There are particularly beautiful viewpoints in the Eifel.
    (There are over 60 of them and IF THE KOMOOT TEAM DOESN'T DELETE IT AGAIN I will try to collect them all!)

    A wonderful view opens from the castle ruins, 560 meters above sea level, over the Kylltal with the Kronenburger See. The lake dammed the Kyll, which rises on the German-Belgian border, for a length of about 1.5 kilometers.
    The castle town of Kronenburg owes its origin to the fact that from this strategically favorable point, at an altitude of 560 meters above sea level, the entire Upper Kyll Valley could be dominated. Kronenburg was first mentioned in documents in 1277.
    The late Gothic church from around 1500 is incorporated into the ring wall, the filigree vault of which is supported by a single pillar in the middle. Many well-preserved and restored half-timbered houses still exist in Burgbering today.
    The place gained particular importance through its ironworks in Kronenburgerhütte in the 18th and 19th centuries.

    There are free parking spaces below the castle ruins. The way to the castle ruins is short and easy to walk. You will be rewarded with a great panoramic view of the Eifel.
    The small town of Kronenburg is also very cute, a little like a film set
