More about the History of Hürtgenwald
In World War II, Hürtgenwald was the theater of what is considered one of the most fierce and tragic battles to date. Two large war graves (one in Hürtgen, one in Vossenack) are places to commemorate those who fell. Nowadays, the pleasing landscape of forested hills, lakes and rivers attracts a lot of people from nearby densely populated areas, e.g. from the Cologne (Cologne vacation rentals | Cologne travel guide) area and the Ruhr Area, for recreational reasons.
