    Hillesheim understands itself with its Kriminalhaus and the Krimihotel as a criminalistic center of the Eifel. This is certainly not least because here is the well-known crime writer Jaques Berndorf resident.

    Hillesheim has a particularly charming flair within the city walls.

    If you love thrillers, you also love the Kriminalhaus. The cafe is furnished and run with a lot of love. Every table has the name of a thriller and on the upper floors there is a lot of crime to discover.

    Located on a Roman road and equipped with a stately castle, the Franconian settlement core was a central place in the Eifel very early on. Hillesheim is mentioned for the first time in the property register of the monastery in Prüm in 943. Nemensgeber is said to be the Franconian noble Hildin - the home of Hildin. The redeveloped town center is surrounded by the still well-preserved and accessible city wall (accessible from mid-March to the end of October).
