Grab the kids and make a beeline right to the town of Nalbach. There’s enough here to see and do to keep an entire family happy, including the most surly teenager or on-the-go toddler. ;-)
The historians in the family will no doubt love the Litermont Museum and Historical Park with its agricultural history and World War II bunkers.
Sports enthusiasts can get in on the 10km Litermont Summit Tour. The 3 – 4 hours it takes to walk this will fly by in a flash. Just a tip: Hiking poles are recommended.
Don’t sweat… there’s tennis and volleyball to do, too. Oh my goodness, my arms are jerking just thinking about this. ;-)
Got an artist in the family (you too?)? They’ll love the Sculpture Trail, filled with all sorts of amazing works of art carved from wood.
Don’t confuse this with the Willow Dome. Stretching 10 meters in diameter, this is a unique “dome” made from beech and willow; and quite the popular spot for weddings — so don’t be surprised if you see couples tying the knot.
Your family “inventor” will like the Optical Telegraph Station, where back in the 1800’s there was a telegraph station stretching from Metz (France) to Mainz (Germany). Pretty awesome how much communication technology has changed in less than 200 years, huh?
Adventurers will get a kick out of the Forest Trail. This “trail” is 2.5 kilometers long with 24 stations created from natural materials. Walk the labyrinth, feel the bark, and teach those little ones all about nature.
There’s also a Jungle Adventure, BTW.
Shoppers and partygoers unite! Nalbach has a Christmas Market (of course!), Carnival, a Peter & Paul Market, a Spring Fair, two Kirmes church festivals (one in September, one in late June/early July); that’s when both the Village Festival and the Primsurferfest (with fireworks) is also held.
Didn’t I tell you that the whole family could be happy? Maybe next time we’ll leave those surly teenagers home, though. ;-)
