Finkenberg Church (angel)
From the church forecourt located above the old town, visitors can enjoy the most famous view of Stolberg's old town with its castle and the Catholic Church of St. Lucia. The Reformed or Protestant Finkenberg Church was built in the years 1688 (completion of the tower) to 1725 (consecration of the nave) in place of its preceding building, a small wooden church from 1618.
Vogelsang Church (swan)
The comparatively modest building is considered one of the oldest Protestant places of worship west of the Lower Rhine. It was built in the years 1646-48 by the Lutheran congregation and has retained its simple but very attractive appearance to this day. The parsonage adjoins the church building without any transition; as there is also no tower, the actual function of the building complex is not easily recognizable. Only the apse at the eastern side and the form of the church windows indicate a sacral building.
Church of St. Lucia (rooster)
The immediate vicinity of the castle already suggests that this church developed from the original castle chapel, which was built in the 16th century. The lords of the castle illegally used this chapel as a parish church, but it was finally recognised as such in 1745. An extensive expansion in late classicist style gave the church its present form in the middle of the 19th century. The neo-baroque tower helmet refers to the original, small baroque church. It wears the Capuchin cross, as this order was based here in the 18th century.
