    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.

    A visit is best recommended with guidance.
    The stained glass window is impressive.

    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" (, 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.

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

    One of the most beautiful churches in the area. The monastery church is very well located, as a starting point for many walks suitable. Also famous is the west window, which was made around 1400.

    Important place.
    The cathedral (which in the strict sense is not one) has excellent acoustics and therefore enjoys a lively musical life.

    If you are here, you should not miss the cathedral!
    The best mood is early in the morning with a clear sky, when the sun is shining through the glass and nobody else is in the cathedral.
