At 525 meters above sea level, the Brehberg is the highest point in the area of the city of Mechernich. The summit cross made of oak was erected in 1996 on the occasion of the 1125th anniversary of Weyer.
The Catholic parish church of St. Cyriakus von Weyer rises in the foreground. The place was first mentioned in writing in 871 AD. But people have left their mark on the area for around 200,000 years. Finds of tools from the Neanderthals are known in the nearby Kakushave. Weyer is also home to a large number of Celtic burial mounds from the 1st millennium BC.
The location is on the edge of the nature reserve "Weyerer Wald and Hahnenberg", which is particularly characterized by a near-natural beech forest. The area is also part of the European biotope network "Natura 2000".
