The tour “As Siegen outgrew itself” illuminates the last 150 years of urban development. The opening of the Ruhr-Sieg route marked the turning point in the year 1861. Coal came by railway.
Siegen’s industrial ascent was brisk. In the true sense of the meaning, Siegen grew beyond itself. Between the Martini Church and the railway station, buildings began to be constructed in the late 19th century. The city wall, symbol of medieval demarcation, was pulled down in the 1890s.
Siegen has experienced several more changes of the times since then. The cityscape tells the tale through the variation in architectural styles and contemporary sins.
History comes alive on this tour through the city centre.
