Sankt Wendel is named after Saint Wendelin of Trier, and of course, this means a beautiful cathedral dedicated to the saint is bound to be one of the attractions of the city.
You guessed right! The Wendalinusbasilica is one of the most spectacular sights around and you would do well to spend time exploring this magnificent structure.
The remains of the saint are interred here and this is just one of many more intriguing features to be explored here. The 18th century Wendels Chapel in Rococo style with a Baroque altar is also quite interesting in its own right.
Sankt Wendel has this splendid Town Hall that bears visiting. While here, you should also consider visiting the Swan House and the Marshall House. The picturesque old town area makes for a great historic ambience along with other equally compelling edifices and the narrow cobbled streets lined with medieval homes.
It is certainly quite a revelation to see remnants of history still standing for you to inspect. Stroll into an inn or café and rest awhile as you take in the ambience of a bygone era.
More architectural wonders are to be encountered in the Bliese church with its awesome tower, the Mission House founded in the late 19th century including Pilgrim hall and bookstore, the 18th century Stem Niederlinxweller Church, and the Magdalene Chapel with its enchanting courtyard and tales to tell.
Sankt Wendel’s unique attractions include the Street of Sculptures which holds the artistic endeavors of about 17 artists from all over the world. Art forms in large stone blocks, weighing tons, will surely keep you occupied for the better part of the day as you wonder at the creative genius that inspires such formations.
Sankt Wendel’s reputation as the “city of sports” is borne out by its splendid facilities for almost any sport you could think of. From biking to golf and roller-skis, this town is the place to really get a good holiday workout.
