Solingen, an urban district located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, is the City Of Blades and home of world famous Wilkinson and ZWILLING.
The city was first cited in the early 11th century by an editor who entitled the region as “Solon chon.” It remained a small village for centuries, and could only develop into an equipped town in the late 14th century.
For the duration of World War II in 1944, the city was also absolutely devastated by an air raid and nearly 1,000 people were killed at that time.
Schloss Burg, a castle, is the biggest reconstructed spot in the city. It attracts plethora of visitors and now serves as an admired sightseer attraction. This structure dates back its origin from the early of the era when count Adolf II von Berg, erected the structure on a mountain.
It leads through the medieval life of the knights and nobleman. So knight armaments and swords are issued among other things.
The Müngsten Bridge is another popular site which is the highest steel railroad bridge in Germany. This railway bridge is having the height of 107 m (351 ft.) and spans over the valley of the river Wupper. It is built to connect the cities Remscheid and Solingen.
Apart from these two sites, Solingen possesses many other spots to provide a joy to its visitors. The Castle of the counts of Berg and the Rhineland Industrial Museum are some wonderful places to watch for.
And, of course, the German Blade Museum is probably the most important spot. It’s where you get a chance to see swords and cutlery of all eras.
