Die Altstadt Hückeswagen hat sich über Jahrhunderte den Charme einer Bergischen Kleinstadt bewahrt.
Numerous events, such as the ‘Altstadtfest’ (old town festival) also take place in the historical alleyways. A real highlight is the summer bobsleigh race held every two years, in which teams from all of the leading bobsleigh nations such as the USA, Germany, Russia, Latvia and Italy take part and race through the alleys of the old town in real bobsleighs.
You can get to know the historical old town of Hückeswagen on your own or by participating in a tour with an expert guide. Guided tours of the town or museum (Heimatmuseum) can be booked at Hückeswagen Tourist Information.
