Description

Guided tour through the town centre of Wissen an der Sieg - buildings, people and stories
The 2-hour tour starts at the tourist information centre in the Regio train station and begins with a look at the "kulturWerkwissen".
Once the largest coal and steel industry site in the Altenkirchen district, it is now a centre for art and culture. From there, the path leads to the Kreuzerhöhung Catholic Church and on to the Marktsube. Ferdinand Lassalle, one of the founding fathers of today's SPD, stopped here in 1847 to represent Countess Sophie von Hatzfeldt in one of the most spectacular divorce proceedings of the 19th century. The multi-generational park "Steinbuschanlage", named after the initiator of the "Volksbank Wissen", is a meeting place for young and old and a place of remembrance. The "Direktoren-Villen", the Germania Hotel and the Gerichtsstraße are just some of the stops on this entertaining tour.
