Many people find themselves in Eitorf for one of the festivals and then decide to stay a couple of days to see the rest of the town.
Whether you are coming for the Christmas Market, Carnival, the Canoe Competition, the Hot Air Balloon Meet Up, Kirmes (the biggest festival of the year), or any of the other cultural festivals or markets you are going to enjoy your time here.
Introducing art to children is difficult, because museums have too many rules and are stuffy places. The pain-free way to see art is to go to the Sculpture Garden. You can see work from the sculptor Giovanni Vetere.
Russian Bears in Eitorf? Sounds pretty strange until you find out that the Russian Bear is a type of butterfly that you might find at the old stone quarry.
This area isn’t in operation anymore, but is a refuge for plants and animals. Those interested in geology will find this site, which is now a tourist attraction, a good choice.
Are you brave? You don’t have to be really brave to cross the Halft suspension bridge. This is a foot bridge that goes over the Sieg River. You might be a bit more reluctant to cross it once you find out that the bridge was built during the Second World War by ordinary citizens as a way to get across the river.
Traveling with children (who can speak German) to Eitorf means that you might enjoy a trip to the nature trail Waldimkerei. This path educates walkers about protecting the forest, what is so special about this particular forest and what animals you can see in the area.
Those not traveling with kiddies might find a trip to the Leuscheid a better option. This is a forested area that is now a protected area.
