Downtown Attendorn, Germany - 9th February 2011

By: Kalliope

We enjoyed a few beautiful sunny days with a blue sky and temperatures up to 10°C. Wow, it was so warm, it almost felt like spring! We grasped the opportunity and took a walk through the city centre.

There's a traffic free zone with a few shops, coffeehouses and an Italian ice cream parlor, which you can probably find in every German city. The spire of the catholic church St. Johannes Baptist - also called "Sauerländer Dom" (Sauerland cathedral) - towers over the city. The tower of the church is about 800 years old, but the baroque roof dates from 1634 only. The nave is gothic.

The old townhall accomodates the museum of local history "Südsauerlandmuseum". The building was renovated only a few years ago. It is not far from the church, on the other side of the old market square "Alter Markt", where a market is still held twice a week.
