Experience history and be amazed. Well maintained. Ideal to explain to children some of the past or to teach nature

Walking through Gruiten village on a spring day is like traveling back in time. There, children frolic through the gardens, here people close tiny doors behind them and disappear into half-timbered houses from centuries past. Some townsfolk might think they see a last remnant of carefree village life here.
Most of the houses have signs that tell the history of the buildings. For example, we pass the doctor's house built in 1750 by the non-medical practitioner Jacob Lauternbach.
<< A "mayor's house" without a mayor >>

The Gruiten-Dorf district with its well-preserved half-timbered houses is the largest intact historical settlement on Haan's urban area. The Romanesque old church tower has been preserved in the cemetery.
The oldest house is the "Haus am Quall", from which at least one wing of the building can be dated back to the 14th century. It was originally part of a yard on the Quall. It was reconstructed and rebuilt in 1978-1980 and today used for celebrations, educational and informational events
The first written mention Gruitens dates from the 11th century.

Beautiful, the historic city center! Very well-kept old half-timbered houses and also an ideal starting point for beautiful hikes along the Düssel. The small, cozy village cafe looked very inviting, but unfortunately it was hopelessly overcrowded on the holiday. Another reason to come back again.

Gruiten consists of Gruiten-Dorf and Gruiten, where the new center, the former town hall and the train station are located. The Düssel flows through Gruiten-Dorf, which is fed here by the Kleine Düssel.

Be sure to visit the old, Catholic village church with the mighty beech in front of it. The silence inside and the great stained glass windows are impressive. Go in and breathe silence!

Gruiten Dorf has a lot of lavishly restored half-timbered houses from the 17th and 18th centuries and other historical sights whose origins go back even further. A great coherent overall picture.

Not only the house on the Quall is worth a visit. The entire listed village has a wonderful charm.
