Burg Kommern

Burg Kommern

Mechernich

The Arenbergs gained prestige and wealth through iron extraction and processing, as well as through clever marriage plans, as well as through political and military activities. The castle is a nested building complex behind an elaborate courtyard façade with a farm yard in front of it, surrounded by a magnificent landscape park. The oldest part is the quarry stone residential tower of 4 storeys on the slope. In the 16th century, the tower was extended by a building to the south. Further additions in 1753 and 1807. In 1884 a further reconstruction took place: The façade was built in the style of the French. Early Baroque designed. The castle received a castle-like character with sheds, stables, utility rooms and greenhouse.

Radioteleskop Effelsberg

With a diameter of 100 metres, the Radio Telescope Effelsberg is one of the largest fully mobile radio telescopes on earth.  Since its commissioning in 1972, the company has continuously worked on improving its technology (e. g. B. a new surface of the antenna dish, better receivers for high-quality data, extremely lownoise electronics) so that even today it is still considered one of the most modern telescopes in the world.
