Martinskirche
The origins of the parish of St. Martin go back to the Frankish era (from the 2nd century AD onwards). Originally built as a defence tower, the mighty bell tower dominates the townscape. This is the most impressive example of Gothic ecclesiastical defence architecture in the Rhineland. The church contains some notable 16th century murals and a Madonna from the mid 15th century (High Gothic).
