    In the middle of the cozy old town of Schwelm stands the Christuskirche. Framed by the small historic houses, their size does not stand out, but with 1,200 seats, the building is the second largest church in Westphalia. The listed building dates back to 1842, King Frederick William IV personally laid the foundation stone.

    Already the predecessor church was for many centuries a milestone on the Westphalian Way of St. James and even today you will receive a stamp in your passport.
