Travel Insider Tips for Münchholzhausen

Münchholzhausen Overview

Münchholzhausen a small village near Wetzlar (Wetzlar vacation rentals | Wetzlar travel guide) with about 2,500 inhabitants (2005). It lies in a wide valley south of the larger city of Wetzlar.

Wetzlar is a short drive away since the city is closeby. Notable architectural features include the Eisenmarkt and the steep grades and claustrophobic street layout of a medieval town. The sandstone cathedral of St. Mary was commenced in the 12th century as a Romanesque building. In the later Middle Ages the construction was continued under a masterplan in Gothic style. The church was never finished, as one steeple still is uncompleted. The cathedral suffered heavy damage in the Second World War by aerial bombing, but was restored in the 1950s. On the outskirts of town exist the ruins of several masonry towers arranged along the river.
