Around the Krönchen: a walk through old Siegen

Almost 900 years of history bring this tour of the historic heart of Siegen vividly to life.


The interactive city model at the Siegerland museum, where the guided tour begins, provides the initial overview. From the grounds of the Oberes Schloss, the path leads past the Rubensbrunnen as far as the Town Hall and Nikolaikirche – which is crowned with the golden Krönchen, symbol of Siegen. The tour continues through the picturesque old town to the Unteres Schloss and Martinikirche, the oldest ecclesiastical building in Siegen. The tour concludes in front of Henner and Frieder, the symbolic figures of a miner and an ironworker that are representative of Siegerland industry.
