A very special church, kind in the middle of the fields, with cows around, beautiful hillsides to climb, many different walks possible, roads to bike, and close to the Dom nice restaurants and terraces. Just relax and enjoy!

Whenever we entertain visitors not residing in our aerea a visit to the cathetral is a must. At least a couple of minutes are required to admire the huge colourful windows. Worthwhile mentioning is that catholic and protestant masses are regularly held.

Visited this marvel during a short trip with friends from cologne. It resembles so much like a old castle in the middle of forest. Fall colors enhanced the beauty. A must visit place if you are in Dusseldorf or Cologne area.
