You shouldn’t come to Schwirzheim but here to the "Herzfenner Hof" ;). Schwirzheim is a small village in the Eiffel. I can’t tell you any highlights that would make it attractive; I don’t even know any vacation apartments there. Just like our farmstead, Schwirzheim is in the Eiffel, except that we are in the so-called Schnee-Eifel (Snow Eiffel), a bit higher up. Our farmstead is in the nice village of Herzfenn, close by 54597 Auw. In general, this area offers many hiking trails close to nature, which can also be explored on bike. There are many activities on offer here: Lünebacher Tierpark zoo is nearby, one can do fitness activities, fish, play tennis. On our farm, one can find many animals such as horses, emus, goats, sheep and bunnies. We have three horses and a few cows. Horse carriage rides are offered and it’s possible to try horse riding. The landscape is wild but beautiful. In winter, the snow can pile up meters high; an Alpine skiing piste with lift is nearby, as are Nordic skiing tracks through the Schneifelwald forest Regards from the Eiffel Anneliese Stephani of "Herzfenner Hof"

Sorry, but there are no attractions in Schwirzheim. Neither do I know the vacation apartment, so that I can’t say anything about its comfort. Prüm is 10 km away and has a beautiful church. Guided tours are on offer. Close by, there are further attractions which can be easily reached by car. Really, the apartment owner should tell his guests about that. In our vacation apartments, our guests find folders full of information material on the region’s attractions, on restaurants and their locations, etc. Hope that helps.

More about the History of Schwirzheim

The city was taken seriously only after the 10th century, which is proof from the local Burgruine Hartelstein's remaining walls. Presumably it was abandoned after the sale to the abbey of Prüm (Prüm vacation rentals | Prüm travel guide) in 1712, thus falling into disrepair. Today Schwirzheim is largely an agricultural town but it is transforming into more of a residential community.
