    Beautiful vantage point above the Apollinari church, which can be reached via numerous steps.
    The view of the Rhine Valley and the Apollinariskirche reward the little effort.

    Located above the Apollinari church, the statue of St. Francis stands and looks down on the city. Reached on the RheinBurgenWeg.

    From here you have a great view of Remagen and the Apo Church. The stairs up here are "tough", but the climb is worth it.

    A little above the church is the statue of St. Francis. From there you have a beautiful view over the Rhine valley.

    A fantastic view of the Rhine. I took the photo of the Apollinari church below the Franciscan tower. I sent this to the Rheinzeitung and it was shown as a reader photo. Pure joy.

    Close to the Apollinaris Church! Steep stairs lead to the statue! The way is worth it

    People kept adding new things to the landscape, such as B. the statue of St. Francis created by the Cologne sculptor Wilhelm Albermann. It was consecrated in 1886. 1886 of all times: The Kulturkampf raged in the German Empire, the monastery on the Apollinarisberg was dissolved. The erection of this statue thus represented a considerable symbol of the disobedience of the Franciscans towards the state. The Catholic Gisbert Graf von Fürstenberg-Stammheim gave the Franciscans a prominent place on his property high above the Apollinaris Church. Today the figure can hardly be seen between the trees, at that time it was visible from afar.

    "... Francis of Assisi is already famous during his lifetime and has a reputation for holiness. After his death he will be canonized within two years. Much of his life is known and has been filmed several times: The well-off citizen son, whose life was driven by a vocation The charismatic founder of the order, who is looking for solitude, has numerous details that are easy to remember: The Pope's dream, the wolf of Gubbio, ... in some parts of Franciscan literature and research he is even referred to as the "old christ" [ lat .: other / second Christ]. ...

    The Apollinaris Church is located above the city of Remagen about 40 m above the Rhine on a hill that is now called Apollinarisberg. The current church was built around the middle of the 19th century in the neo-Gothic style and painted in the Nazarene style. More information at de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollinariskirche_(Remagen)
