Historic town house Langenberg


Building / Modern Architecture
The historic town center of Langenberg is enthroned in the middle of Velbert's old town.
Since its renovation, the monumental, castle-like stone building has been a popular and contemporary location for events of all kinds. It is worth visiting the impressive “Foundation Stone Boxes” exhibition at weekends in the afternoon. Almost 400 renowned artists designed triptychs made of sand-lime brick.
