Favorite thing: Herscheid has first been mentioned in an official document in 904 under the name "Herisceithe". It is thought, that already before 800 there was a castle at the edge of town for the protection of the population in the area. Around the year 1000 there was a church community. At that time the inhabitants started working with iron. In 1592 there were already 13 blacksmith shops. The area became more and more prosperous and the small shops developped into industries.
I'm not going to write you the history or anything about this place as I don't know anything and it's not important. I just know that I had a wonderful Saturday afternoon/evening in this place visiting VT member HORSCHECK.
