Monschau : Michelin's recommendations
Monschau is a delightful small town nestling in a deep winding gorge of the River Rur. The town owes its former prosperity to the cloth industry developed here by Protestants from Aachen and many of its fine houses date from this period. Prior to this time, Monschau was simply a small community of farmers who cultivated the land surrounding the town.
