The Historische Altstadt in the heart of Monschau is made up of row upon row of beautiful half timber houses, some black & white, some with red details, all beautifully maintain
ed & so attractive & picturesque.
Eschbachstrasse & Kirchestrasse are some of the oldest streets - many of the pretty winding cobbled streets have interesting houses with lovely flower boxes, delicate bridges, steep streets,
Beautiful details, tall houses, built on to the river Rur as it flows through the town, a crisp morning with frost on the grey slate roofs.
A crisp, cold morning has beautiful corn blue skies that accentuated the shapes & colours of the buildings.
The half timbered buildings follow the river Rur through town, they are supported by cantilevered wooden supports & everywhere, the gentle sound of the river as it babbles along ...
Monschau has a thriving Christmas market, but the entire town has beautiful & tasteful decorations everywhere - lovely pots with touches of Christmas, this car, lanterns etc .
Some of the lovely decorations I saw around the town ...
Do you not just love the buildings?
Thank you for stopping by, I look forward to your company & comments,
