The Medal and Decoration Production City
The Bundesverdienstkreuz (Federal Award Cross) the highest decoration the Federal Republic of Germany presents is produced in Lüdenscheid. Hence each time the Federal President presents a medal it was made here in the city.
The Light of Lüdenscheid in the Louvre
Something I also learned during my visit to Lüdenscheid that the company Erco which is at home in the city manufactured the lights of the pyramid that is the centre of the Louvre in Paris today. The city of light certainly shines its light to far away places.
Every year in the first half of September there is a city festival for a weekend. There is a lot of beer drinking going on as well as music performances. Also, there is a whole variety of local and foreign food stalls.
