Overath has all it takes to soothe your nerves and inspire you onwards whether you’re a student or a single parent with a large family in tow.
This is the idyllic rural hideaway that you’ll remember long after you’ve left it, and for good reason too. Faraway hills, rushing streams, and the call of birds enhance your experience as you stroll along the quaint streets of this strikingly beautiful town.
Overath is not known for any world famous landmarks, but the charm of the old town square with its medieval monuments, imposing cathedrals and churches such as the St. Walburga, the St. Maria Heimsuchung, a popular pilgrimage center, and St. Rochus with its stately clock tower are well worth visiting.
Edifices such as the Steinhof, which is now a restaurant, Gut Eichthal and charming half-timbered homes among others bring alive an age long forgotten unless you majored in history.
While in Overath you will be guided to the Cyriax House, an erstwhile Benedictine monastery, and other landmarks such as the Lüderich Tower. Visit the Bernsau ruins for its historic worth and you’ll soon see there’s more to this place than meets the eye.
Look forward to time honored leisure pursuits such as horseback riding, hiking, and guided walking tours that let you take it all in in your own time. Nobody tells you what to do or how soon to do it. It’s all up to you. :-)
Overath has a golf course and in spite of its laid back demeanor does pack quite a punch when it comes to sports and outdoor activities. Many riding stables are to be found around the place and there is a steady stream of visitors wanting a ride.
