Aussicht vom Hasenberg

Eifel View Hasenberg 54589 Stadtkyll 

From the Eifel view Hasenberg you can see the Kylltal. The southern foothills of the Dollendorfer Kalkmulde can be seen between this valley and the Baasem/Dahlem Forest.

Stadtkyll was first mentioned in documents around 1100. In 1292 the settlement was already a town with a wall and a castle. In the period that followed, Stadtkyll was hit by several disasters and was severely destroyed (1632, 1687, 1814 and 1854). Since the stones from the city wall were often used during reconstruction, the old fortifications disappeared completely. However, Stadtkyll experienced the worst destruction in the recent past due to the effects of the Second World War. Today Stadtkyll is a state-recognized climatic health resort.

Numerous finds from Roman times were unearthed not far from Stadtkyll and in the Niederkyll district. There is even a Roman man's bust walled up in the St. Hubertus chapel there. The parish church of St. Joseph in its current form dates back to the middle of the 19th century. Inside the church you can see an altar from the beginning of the 18th century and six paintings by the Elector of Trier's court painter Heinrich Foelix (1732 to 1803). Also worth seeing is the late Gothic Hubertus Chapel in the Niederkyll district (around 1600) with a high altar (1755), a rectangular wooden column structure, an oil painting, side altars with wooden figures and a choir wall with a cast iron emergency cross. (Roman monument on the outer wall of the chapel).
