The former farming town has retained its medieval charm until today
The bronze model of the city of Bitburg can be found at Spittel Square in the pedestrian area. It was donated by Dr.-Hanns-Simon-Stiftung and shows the layout of the modern city centre. Especially blind people get an accurate impression of their surroundings. Place names in Braille add further detail to the model.
The "Gäßestrepper" refers to an old town legend.
The bronze statue on the Pferdemarkt, the Horse Market, was designed by one of Bitburg’s own sculptors, Roger Delleré. The figure is to remind us of an era when horse and cattle markets were a daily occurrence and contributed largely to the town’s economic development.
In 1646 a replica of the Chapel of the Assumption near Jerusalem was built on the hill between Oberkail and Schwarzenborn.
In the community forest of Herforst, the so-called "Arenberg Forest", there are still remains of this wall as a 1 m-high stone wall with original foundations.
