    Kirchberg

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rising above Herborn is a seminarium and the Stadkirche (church).

    The towers are interesting. They were used as prisons. Bad students of the "Hohe Schule" were put in the Karzerturm, heavy criminals were put in the Hexenturm and those citizens that broke the law were put in the BĂĽrgerturm.

    Coat of arms

    by ATLC Written Apr 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The coat of arms all around the town hall were put there from around 1650. They were all family coats of arms of the town mayors and councillors. It was restored in 1914 and shows a kind of "who's who" of those who held power some 300 years ago.

    Inside the town hall is a large entry hall with an early baroque staircase. Along the staircase are paintings which were gifts by the Nassau-Dillenburg family who ruled this region some four centuries ago.

    Short town walk

    We were expected in Herborn for brunch in the Marktcafé on the central market square. To our surprise this turned out to be a very nice little town and we took a bit of time to stroll around on a quiet, early Sunday morning.
    Here's the Leonard Tower as part of the old fortifications.

    I didn't quite catch that typical green Bayerisches costume that the old gentleman wore. But the view is nice too.

    Duck the bridge?

    A good sign in Herborn is that a lot of attention is paid to how it looks. This little detail on the bridge. Flowers and duck sculptures around it.

    I can't quite make out the text and I suspect the door covers a bit of it.
