Burscheid is a warm and welcoming town with a rich culture and wonderful sense of community. Its prominent industrial focus means Burscheid is a town designed for living rather than looking, however the town still boasts a smattering of notable sights and an interesting historical heritage. A wander around the town centre will afford travellers a sense of peace and attractive churches and quaint market squares are guaranteed to ignite cultural interest.
The town’s most notable site is the Haus Landscheid, a former estate that belonged to the prosperous knight Henrich von Nesselrode and dates back to 1731. Upon the sight now stands a hotel; however the rich history of the sight has been preserved and can be discovered with the informative panels that decorate the town.
Located in a picturesque place in the nearby Wiehbach Valley, the Lamberts Mill is a traditional architectural structure that was transformed into an informative museum in 1994. Excellent exhibitions detail the town’s rich agricultural and historical heritage and provide information on the complex processes that occur within authentic mills.
