North Eifel Christmas Route

by bitburgerland Online Now Nov 21, 2005 at 2:15 PM

I have sat down and planned my "Christmas Route" for this weekend...starting in Bitburg Germany

Just about all of these places I have never been before. If you could look at this and share any tips you might have to help me on this trip I would appreciate it.

I will be needing a place to stay some place near Aachen and of course, I will be looking for great places to eat all along the way!

If you have any knowlege of local events scheduled during this time please pop me a note so I can adjust my plans
