St. Wendel Old Town

    Discover the winding streets and historic squares of the old town.

    Famous generals, artists, scholars and even the ancestress of the Windsor family have all left their mark here.

    You can sense its eventful history in the picturesque old town with its historical buildings. The façades of the old town houses have been lovingly restored, particularly at the Fruchtmarkt and around the Basilica of St. Wendelin. Schlossplatz, where Duchess Luise once resided, is now a lively meeting place packed with street cafés and restaurants that invite you to linger and feast to your heart's content.
