  • Place to 30 kms of Cologne... to which we visited on the recommendation of the office of tourism and at the same inform us that the visits are guided (one daily at 14.30 hs) so it could not know and enjoy it... regrettable as they do not inform the visitor of these rules... Nobody told us the topic schedule or that is debian make reservations beforehand...

  • the Park is very nice, great variety of trees and a herd of deer, but only you can travel by bus, and there are many places that cannot be seen as the cliffs to the River, the viewpoint is not enabled, and indeed the House visible from 200 m. View leaves desire to know him more,
