The "Fire and Flame Trail" in Bergneustadt

Fires, religious zeal and the first firefighters

Anyone who looks at the old town of Bergneustadt would hardly guess that the town has fallen victim to devastating fires on several occasions. The Bergneustadt natives rebuilt their houses with zeal. This stretch not only passes through the history of the fire service that dates back to Roman times, but also to a unique fire service convalescence home and the fire service helmets exhibition.
