House in Eisenberg, Germany
We live in a semi-detached house with garden and sauna in a quiet area within 5 minutes walk to the centre of Eisenberg. Eisenberg is situated in the heart of Palatinate. There you can buy everything you need for the daily life. Within 1,5 km you find a wonderful openair pool. It´s surrounded by the beautiful forest, that is well knon in Palatinate. The pool itself offers various attractions for all the family. Childrens´eys widen when they see the large slide which dips into the childrens´ pool. To add to the fun there is a minigolf course very near the pool.
You can also experience the countryside of Erdekaut with its small mining museum, the largest play ground in the Palatinate, a slide and a mud patch for the children to run wild in. For grown-ups it is a beautiful area for recreation und relaxing.
A very popular place to relax is Eiswoog, near Ramsen, in the biosphere reservation forest in Palatinate. The "Stumpfwaldbahn", a small narrow-gauge railway which runs through the forest from Ramsen to Lake Eiswoog, is a favourite for young and old. All you need to do, is to sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery. On the lake itself ou can go for a swim or enjoy a trip on a rowing boat. If the fresh air makes you feel hungry, the restaurant Seehaus Forelle (Lake House Trout), with its wonderful view overlooking the lake or the other restaurants in Ramsen, all share an excellent reputation for therir food and hospitality.
A lot of sight have witnessed the exceptional history of Eisenberg, dating back dacades. The most important historical places can be visited either with an expert guide or one can explore them alone. In roman times, Eisenberg was the enctre of the iron-mining industry. In the Roman Park Vicus Eisenberg there are still archaeological excavations taking place.
In the old part of Eisenberg you an see the "Zehnthaus", the oldest building in the town, dating back to the Middle Ages. On the peak of the hill in Stauf - just ouside Eisenberg -, there is an old castle ruin, a Salian Castle. The view from the castle is breathtaking.
The convent n Rosenthal, where Cistercian nuns lived until the 18th century, is really worth visiting. If you are lucky, you might be ablte to get tickets for a concert held during the summer months. The atmosphere is electric between the old ruined walls.
