Background / Points of Interest:

The City of Meerbusch was founded in 1970. The name of the city comes from the monastery „Prämonstratenserinnenkloster Meer“  Ruins of the monastery can be visited in the Meerhof or so-called Haus Meer.
You also should take a look at the 13th century churchtower, which is located in Meerbusch Büderich. Today it is used as a memorial for war victims. The entrance portal and the hanging cross inside the church have been designed by the artist Joseph Beuys. Not only for people, who want to get married in the chapel Niederdonk (15th century), it is also a pilgrimage- and marriage chapel.

A walk through the seat of nobility, Dyckhof, with its main building, which attracts attention with its numerous gables and an enormous tower with several curved roofs, gives you interesting sights. You clearly recognize the characteristics of the baroque style, which had been added during the construction in 1666.
