Monschau is a town in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, located at an altitude of about 420 meters in the city region of Aachen. It lies on the edge of the Eifel at the headwaters of the Ruhr.
Monschau is located in the narrow and deep valley of the Ruhr, barely four kilometers from the Belgian border.
Monschau was first mentioned in 1198 as Mons Ioci. The castle probably originated in the 13th century and was founded by the Duke of Limburg as Castrum in Munioie. In 1352, the settlement near the castle received city rights. In 1433 the town passed to the Duchy of Gulik. The village is also called the Christmas village because of its picturesque appearance and the Netflix Christmas series "Überweihnachten" was recorded in the village.
