Bike Touring Highlight
Here you can see, among other things, a boundary stone with a symbol of the Cistercians. The Cistercian monastery Kamp (Rheinberg) from 1122 was the first monastery of the order on German soil. It maintained close relations with Kempen. Around 1480 they owned around 75 acres of arable land, which bordered on the von Fürstenbergs, among others. In the middle of the 17th century, boundary stones marked the land with the symbol of the Cistercians. This represents the earth that is shackled by the power of evil. Around 1804, at the time of secularization, the church goods were sold to the highest bidder.
