Photo Essay: Monschau, Germany

Monschau, Germany is a tiny village nestled in a valley near the Belgium border.  Sure it is a little touristy but it is incredibly picturesque  The pace of this town is very relaxed and layed back.  It doesn't feel artificial.  You will find families in their back yards celebrating their kids birthdays in the shadow of the amazing castle.  Monschau is an amazingly beautiful place and if you get the chance you should drop in for a visit.
