The area around Strohplatz -near the Eifel, Trier and Cochem- is really beautiful. From Strohplatz you can walk straight into the woods and you can walk for hours without meeting anyone. An hour's drive from the Eifel region and in the middle of the Mosel region: in short, a tourist area and therefore much to see and do. We've made a long list of almost all places of interest in the area, from wood museum to long walk.
In terms of amenities, Strohplatz is not isolated. Five kilometers west is Thalfang, with three supermarkets and a few restaurants, including a Thai restaurant where you have to eat. Five kilometers east is Morbach with four large supermarkets, of course restaurants and an ice cream shop with delicious ice cream.
Behind every valley is another beautiful valley.
