Prum (Rhineland-Palatinate)

Germany or the Federal Republic of Germany is located in Central Europe with Berlin as its capital city. The German language was once the lingua franca of central, eastern and northern Europe. It is a member state of the United Nations, NATO, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G8, Group of 8, and the G4, Group of 4, nations, and is a founding member of the European Union. It is the European Union's most populous and most economically powerful member state. Germany is one of the largest European economies and the third largest economy in the world in real terms.
Prum is a medium sized city in the Westeifel, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. Formerly a district town, today it is the administrative seat of the Verbandsgemeinde or collective municipality Prum. Prum lies on the Prum River, a tributary of the Sauer, and is at the foot of the Schneifel, a medium mountainous region extending across the western parts of central Europe, which is 453 meters high.  
Since 1980 it has not been possible to take the train to Prum, with the exception of freight trains that operated up to the end of the 1990s. In December 2000 the last train went through Prum, and this was a special event. Since that time, the rail tracks have been dismantled. Prum Air Station is located just outside of Prum, and this station is operated by the United States Air Force.
In July and August Prum summer takes place. The prelude begins Mark Sunday with a music competition on the streets. During the next eight Thursdays, various guests meet at the town hall, where there are various competitions, such as a beer jug lift and trunk sawing. There is also a bicycle rally, a fashion show, and dances included in the program.

Tourism in Germany has expanded since the end of World War II, and many tourists visit Germany to experience a sense of European history. The countryside exhibits a pastoral aura, while its cities exhibit both a modern and classical feel.
