About Stolberg


Stolberg is a historic old town with an impressive castle complex, three old town churches and pre-industrial homes and workplaces. The castle complex dates back to the 12th century and there are many other buildings and streets to explore. The appearance of the old town is predominantly determined by the local limestone and the edging of windows and doors are often made of bluestone, which results in visually attractive house facades. The old town encloses the southern and western flank of the castle.

The oldest surviving half-timbered house can still be admired in Klatterstraße and the building with house number 12 is from the 18th century and served as a brewery.
