(3.7/5 based on 10 reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: historic sites
Rösrath is a city in the Rheinisch-Bergischer Kreis in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The earliest known documents mentioning the settlement Rösrath can be found in documents dated to 1356. There have been findings of Paleolithic and Mesolithic tools in the city area Forsbach. The community was elevated to city status in 2001.GeographyRösrath is located in the immediate vicinity of Cologne. The municipal area of Rösrath is bordering on the south-eastern city limits of Cologne. Therefore from Cologne's point of view Rösrath is called a Gateway to the Berg region (Bergisches Land). The municipal area partly extends over the nature reserves of the Wahner Heide and Königsforst.The Coat of Arms of RösrathThe coat of arms of Rösrath consists of two areas: The upper area shows the red lion of Berg with blue crown, tongue and claws. The lion appears in most of the coats of arms in the district of the Rheinisch-Bergischer Kreis. The lower area shows a hunting horn with a green background. It symbolizes the Königsforst, in former times a popular hunting district of the earls of Berg.Landmark of RösrathThe gateway of Eulenbroich castle is virtually the landmark of Rösrath. This gateway to the Berg region (Bergisches Land) is used as logo on the letterheads and internet pages of the town council. CarnivalCologne is well known as a "stronghold" of German carnival with its famous carnival parade on the Monday before Strove Tuesday. Rösrath isn't too far away from Cologne. Also in Rösrath a Rose Monday Parade is organized every year. The parade isn't as big as in Cologne, but the foolishness is just as wild as in the neighbouring large town.
