    This church was built in 1881-1884 at the place of the previous church that was destroyed during a big fire in 1976.
    The church was built in New Gothic style.
    This church is known as Die Marktkirche and is famous for its high belfry.
    They say the belfry used to have a high spire, but it was damaged during a bombing in 1945 and was then replaced by a lower dome.

    Raiffeisenplatz (Raiffeisen Square) is located close to Roentgenmuseum (Kreismuseum) - the county local lore and history museum.
    Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen (1818-1888) was the mayor of one of the present districts of Neuwied - Heddesdorf - from 1852 to 1865.
    Here he founded his mutual assistance associations and worked out their principles of work.

    I enjoyed visiting the Kreismuseum - the County Local Lore and History Museum.
    The full name of the museum is Roentgen und Raiffeisen - Kunst und Kulturmuseum.
    There is an exhibition of Roentgen furniture that was very fasionable in Europe at that time.
    Brothers Abraham Roentgen (1711-1793) und David Roentgen (1747-1807) created splendid pieces of furniture that enchanted a lot of wealthy customers all over Europe.
    This is where different history exhibitions are often held.
    You can see the monument to Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen near the building of the museum.

    It is called after Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen, a great social reformer of the 19th century.

    Neuwied Doesn't Sleep - this is what I missed during my visit there in September 2006.
    This event is well-known all over the province.
    There are a lot of concerts, the shops and cafes are open all night.

Neuwied Warnings and Dangers

    Since the inner city of Neuwied is situated upon a former bed of the river Rhine, it is highly endangered by high water.
    Moreover, it is one of very few towns in the region protected by huge walls against the high water.
    I was impressed reading these words at the back side of Deich-Krone building:
    Allen Gewalten zum Trutz sich erhalten,
    nimmer sich beugen,
    kraeftig sich zeigen,
    rufet die Arme der Goetter herbei.
    Here is my English translation of that slogan: /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
    In spite of all violence
    keep steady, never bend,
    show strength
    and call the hands of Gods to you
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

    At the flood protection dyke, Neuwied Mayor Robert Krups, initiator of the dyke Flood protection dyke, Neuwied Deichkrone, Neuwied Neuwied: tolerant and lively!
