Things to See in Enkirch
Worth putting foremost from the point of view of sightseeing are the two churches, one Evangelical and one Catholic.
Very colourful old timber-frame houses can be found in narrow, very impressive laneways that bring back some of the flair of the Middle Ages.
In the area near the church meadow are also remnants of the mediaeval town fortifications.
As well as its historical timber-frame houses, Enkirch also has many Classicist buildings built between the mid 19th century and the end of the First World War, among which is the imposing old village school. This is no longer used as a school, but together with the Terstegen-Haus, it houses, among others, the local music club. There is now a modern primary school in the village centre.

More about the History of Enkirch
Enkirch was already an important centre as early as Celtic times, and then on into Roman times. On 1 April 733, Enkirch had its first documentary mention in the noblewoman Adela’s will as Anchiriacum. It was mentioned for the second time on 10 February 908 by King Ludwig IV when he donated the church and manse to Archbishop Radbod of Trier.
