The cosy picturesque town of Altenkirchen is located in Rhineland-Palatinate. The city is situated at the confluence of the rivers Erbach and Wied, which flow directly south of the city centre. The first mention of Altenkirchen dates back to 1131.
The town's main attractions are the Krottorf castle and the old church of Altenkirchen, where the so-called Svantevitsky stone is located. The city is famous for its privileged pharmacy - one of the few historical sites that survived the destruction of Altenkirchen. The pharmacy is one of the oldest and most traditional in Westerwald. There are several restored half-timbered houses or house facades from the Gründerzeit era on the market square. A fountain and stepped seats were created in the centre of the square when the city centre was rebuilt into a pedestrian zone in the 1970s.
Altenkirchen hosts an international tennis tournament every year. Altenkirchen has held the title of fair trade city since 2015 and was one of 382 cities in Germany that had it at the time of the award. The town has a large number of headquarters, including the production of paper, accessories for electrical installations and tanks for transportation. Alterkircher is also home to one of the locations of the DRK Hospital Altenkirchen-Hachenburg. The medical centre is a leader in the region, especially in traumatology and pain therapy.
The city enchants tourists with its beautiful green scenery and relaxed atmosphere. Alterkirchnen is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
