"Welcome to Schwelm" Schwelm by yumyum

Schwelm Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 25 photos

We came to Schwelm on passing through to somewhere else using an off the beaten path road from our starting destination.

When I saw the sight of the Altstadt Meile (first picture in travelogue) I urgently wished to stop and take a look even though the weather was showing its grey side.

Schwelm is the smallest city in Nordrhine-Westphalia and the first people came around the 9th century and founded the Fronhof.

There is a lot of info to be found in Wikipedia and on www.schwelm.de

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:Take a look if you pass through here anyway.

    Schwelm looks like a pretty town! To take off the beaten path roads can be great!

    I don't think I have ever seen slate houses - interesting This is a lovely laid back place & I'm glad the locals saved the brewery too

    What a picturesque old town - and even with its own brewery too ;) Looking forward to seeing you soon!

    In 2001 I spent four nights in Wuppertal from where I could reach Scwelm by 608 bus now I know with your help... Thanks Sonja for a nice introduction to one more wonderful German town!

    It is always nice to stumble upon a little gem like Schwelm! Those are beautiful slate houses and glad to see the old brewery survived (Moosehead from my home province is the largest independent brewer in Canada). The synagogue tale is sad.
