Rösrath, the gateway to the Bergisches Land region, lies hidden among the verdant nature reserves of Königsforst and Wahner Heide, but has plenty to offer those who take the initiative to explore. Here’s where you can simply relax in the lap of nature or go hiking, biking, or trekking to make discoveries of your own.
Nestling the Royal Forest, Rösrath has a wealth of natural beauty that features quaint little villages, laid back communities, gently sloping hills, rushing streams, and perhaps the bluest skies you’ve ever seen. Whether it’s time-out, or recuperation, or just finishing War and Peace, this town is the ideal destination for these and a host of other purposes.
While soaking in this fresh pristine beauty it’s only natural that your thoughts run towards how to make the best of it. You could start by exploring the vestiges of medieval glory that is to be spied in every corner or cobbled walkway.
You can’t miss the Eulenbroich Castle which is a famous landmark in the area. The impressive gateway of this medieval monument has its own claim to fame as the logo of the town council.
Rösrath has more medieval architecture in the form of historic farm houses, churches and other official buildings. Though not as famous as the neighboring Cologne, it does have a uniqueness that makes it worth your while to spend time exploring at will the narrow cobbled walks and ruins of the old monuments that still have tales to tell.
Rösrath comes alive during its Rose Monday Parade, which is something you should certainly fit into your itinerary. Here’s your opportunity to soak in the local culture and take part in the madness that sets spirits soaring. Cool down with a frosty Kölsch beer and gorge on fabulous Nuremberg sausages. Join in the fun and games and sing along as best as you can. :-)
