In Blankenheim the medieval townscape is almost completely preserved. In the historic town center, visitors can admire the Ahr spring, old town gates, a late Gothic parish church and historic half-timbered buildings in romantic corners and alleys. The Grafenburg with its medieval water supply to the castle complex, the so-called Tiergartentunnel, is a historical testimony of a special kind!
The reconstruction of the Roman villa of Blankenheim gives an insight into one of the more than 2000 years old testimonies of Roman settlement in the Eifel region. It gives an impression of the everyday Roman life of that time.
An absolute highlight is the unique, traditional ghost parade taking place on Carnival Saturday, which is even announced by radio and television.
