After just reading about Nettersheim in North Rhine-Westphalia, you’ll instantly feel better. So, can you imagine how good you’ll feel after you’ve been here?
It’s all about sports and health in this town, with everything from regular old walking paths to Nordic Walking trails.
But, I look at it this way — if I’m going to go wandering around into the great outdoors, I want to do it by volcanoes.
Do you not know me by now?
Nettersheim — Top Areas Of Interest
You know I said that because Nettersheim sits along the volcanic Eifel Region. This area is great for bicycling, as well as just using your own two feet.
Quite a number of these walking trails around Nettersheim are really family friendly (meaning you won’t have the kids screaming their feet hurt or asking “are we there yet?”).
Of course, if you really want to get away from the evil people (oh, I mean your wonderful, amazing children, ha-ha) then you’ll want to go right to the Eifelhöhen Clinic with health classes, a pool, and a sauna.
In winter, Nettersheim doesn’t just “shut down for the season.” No, you’ve got skiing, cross-country skiing, and all other kinds of winter wonderland fun.
To engage your mind, I’d suggest a visit to the Kulturbahnhof Nettersheim, a cultural center with all sorts of exhibits.
Over at the Eifel Nature Center there are all sorts of exhibits on man-made and natural history. Again, with volcanoes — nice, isn’t it? The best part is the Nature Center is totally family friendly, so even the kids can learn something.
An interesting way to experience the Eifel, or Nettersheim as a whole, is a multimedia CD that can be purchased at the Rathaus (Town Hall). For less than three Euro you’ll learn all about the town’s eleven hamlets and countryside.
Yeah, I do feel better already — I’ve turned up the volume on my Nettersheim CD & can’t hear the kids. ;-)
