Siegburg, Germany

Guide for the rail traveller


Local languageGerman
Country Germany


Siegburg is perhaps most famous for its pottery, a local tradition since the 12th century. The Siegburg Pottery museum has artefacts that date back to the early days of ceramic-making, and a ceramics market every July commemorates the craft. Wandering around the town there are many relics of Siegburg’s past, sections of the old city wall remain for example, as do 13th century gabled houses. But man can’t subsist on tourist sites alone, and Siegburg prides itself on having a varied restaurant scene that has everything from regional cuisine to Iranian and Croatian food. Residents shop at the weekly market which offers freshly caught fish and French cheeses.
