    Part of the Way of St. James.
    Unfortunately, the stamp for the Pilgrim Pass is not there but in the parish office.

    The Swister Tower represents the remains of the old parish and pilgrimage church on the Swisterberg. The former parish church was built between 1100 and 1125. After the collapse and demolition of the nave in 1828, the tower was repeatedly renovated until the end in 2006 and blessed as a place of pilgrimage by the Archbishop of Cologne

    The Swister Tower, built between 1100 and 1125, is the remnant of the old parish and pilgrimage church of the former village of Swist on the Swisterberg in Weilerswist. Remains of the foundations of the nave are attributed to the 9th century. Archaeological finds from Roman times point to the establishment of the first Christian church over a Roman sanctuary.

    Swister tower with chapel, not only a pilgrimage station on the Way of St. James, but a great place to rest at any time

    Crisscrossing the forest, very different than straying through the Eifel. But beware, some ways are actually meant only for the riders, also on my tour, we have 'mistakenly' gone such a path. But as you know, many roads lead to the Swister Tower. Otherwise very nice for a cultivated forest ...

    The Swister tower stands on a hill, the tower itself is a highlight as well as the view.
