    The Altenberg Cathedral is probably the most famous church in Bergisches Land. The Altenberg Cathedral was built from 1255 in the Gothic style as a monastery church of St. Mary's Assumption for the Abbey of Altenberg. The Altenberg Cathedral was built of trachyte rock, which was carved in the Siebengebirge from Drachenfels. Right next to the cathedral, it can be in the Hotel-Restaurant Altenberger Hof.

    Also recommended is the Christmas market right in front of the Altenberg Cathedral. He is nostalgic and crafts and Christmas decorations are offered. The culinary part is separately in front of the Altenberger Hof. Parking should be paid on the Märchenwaldparkplatz. It takes place every year only on one weekend. This is usually from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening on the 2nd Advent weekend.

    Altenberg Cathedral is the traditional name for the monastery church, whereby the word "cathedral" in this case does not refer to the cathedral church of a diocese, which never existed in Altenberg. The Altenberg Cathedral is owned by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and has been used as a parish church since 1857 by the Roman Catholic and Protestant parishes.

    The Hotel Altenberger Hof is an ideal accommodation for a hiking weekend in the Bergisches Land region. In addition to the Count and Mönchsweg the "mountain hiking country" (bergisches-wanderland.de), which runs past the "front door", are from here more Bergisch forays such. B. the mill path in Kürten and the fruit path in Leichlingen excellent reach. Room, food and service left nothing to be desired.

    A beautiful cathedral, where you can see the sun shining through the stained glass windows.

    The light of the windows is impressive at any time of the day, but in the morning it is golden. Just beautiful.

    Designed around 1390 and probably completed before 1400, the west window of the Altenberg Cathedral is the largest Gothic stained-glass window north of the Alps. It represents the heavenly Jerusalem.

    Very nice building in beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately, little infrastructure nearby. In good weather you get in the only 2 available inns no more space.
