Neuenrade Things to Do

  • Kaiser Wilhelm I. monument

    The monument of Kaiser Wilhelm the first, who died in 1888 was made in 1891. In 1968 the monument had to be shifted into the garden of the Hotel Kaisergarten and in 2004 the Kaiser got accidentally beheaded and had to be repaired.In the former spot of the Wilhelm monument you will now find the peace monument (picture 4).

  • Rathaus

    The present Rathaus (town hall) consists of a building dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. It is connected to a modern flat roof building. On the park side of the older building you will find the plate of Neuenrade which was hanging at the gable of the former Rathaus at Erste Strasse.

  • Town model

    The metal town model is on top of some leftovers of the city wall dating back to 1355. The model shows the city at around 1600. Today the castle and the walls as well as the city gates are no longer here. It must once have been a cute little town. The basic street scheme with the three parallel main roads still exists today.

  • Gerichtslinde / Pranger

    You will find the Gerichtslinde (court linden tree) in the Park am Wall. It is over 900 years old. Incidently, nearby there used to be also a court house and a pranger where you will now find a place called Gertruden-Apotheke. So in the spot where you will find the Gertruden-Apotheke there used to be the first Rathaus (town hall) in the 14th...

  • Protestant Parish Church

    From the founding time of the city only the tower is original, even though the spire was only added much later. The tower belonged to the city’s defense system. Originally there was a chapel dedicated to our dear lady, whereas the altar was dedicated to the holy Katharina. In 1564 the Lutheran reformation was accepted and since then the church has...

  • Villa Herfeld (Villa am Wall)

    The former Villa Herfeld is a listed building dating back to 1903. It was built by the Herfeld family and only in 2000 the city took over the villa. You will notice the beautiful building in the center of town when you take a walk through the “Park am Wall”.

  • St. Marien Heimsuchung Church

    The congregation of the this catholic church was founded in 1861. You will find this big church with its impressive tower on the Erste Strasse.

  • Stadtbrunnen

    The city fountain is located in the old part of town and was built in 1990. On the tables around the base of the statue you will find the history of the town. The prominent figure on top is Count Engelbert the 3rd of the Mark who awarded the city rights to the town in 1355.

  • Old buildings

    You will find a couple of old building at Zweite Strasse 16 and 18. Formerly there was only one building there but after it burned down it was replaced by two which were the smallest in the old part of town. They were owned by the same family but inhabited by different relatives. On picture no. 2 you will see some other street scene and on picture...

Neuenrade Local Customs

  • Schnullerbaum

    A Schnullerbaum is a comforter or dummy tree. This is indeed a local custom and you will find this tree on Kohlberg. When we walked past there were a fair few comforters hanging on the tree. So it is recommended that all small kids visit this tree as a ritual to get rid of their comforter. I thought this is a lovely idea. Apparently it originates...

  • Public toilets

    I think this is the toilet with the funniest opening times I’ve ever seen. It is located by the Gertrudenmarkt around Zweite Strasse and is only open on Fridays during the market from 13.00 till 19.00. The other public toilet is by the Rathaus but is only open during office hours.

  • Monuments on Kohlberg

    On Kohlberg you will not only find the previously mentioned hiking trails but also a memorial cemetery. Today at the Waldfriedhof there are 21 people from the former Soviet Union, Poland and Yugoslavia buried. Apparently they were commited to official duty and died in nearby SGV-Kohlberghaus which was used as a hospital. I wouldn’t be surprised if...

  • Quittmannsturm (Kohlberg)

    The name Quittmannsturm means Quittmann’s tower but if you look at the ending in German you can recognise the word “sturm” which is storm in English. After the tower was built in 1892 a storm destroyed it in winter 1983 and it had to be rebuilt. Today it is very safe to climb, I have been up there and enjoyed the view in several directions. The...
