Old Breinig - a historical street of houses
This historical part of Stolberg- Breinig is situated west of Stolberg city on the outskirts of the forest of the national parc - Eifel.
Its listed buildings made out of bluestone and have been forcefully restored beginning in the1980ies until today. The historical farmhouses were built in the 16th and 17th century from quarry stones out of the quarry in Breinig. You could say that these houses arosed out of waste products of the quarry.
From this place you may also start wonderful walking and biking tours. You can pass the nature reserve „Schlangenberg“ this area used to be an ore mine. Because of the special soil you will find diverse plants like the „Galmeiveilchen“ (a certain type of a violet) in spring and early summer.
