From Leitz-Park to the old town A photographic tour
Explore the 4.5 km circuit tour between Leitz-Park and the old town of Wetzlar, and capture delightful pictures along the way.
Selected motifs have been marked with red spots, and are just waiting to be photographed.
Have fun discovering them!
1 - LEITZ-PARK & 2 - BISMARCKTURM
Home to the Leica brand. Start your day with a tour in the World of Leica, a visit to the Ernst Leitz Museum, or a coffee at Café Leitz. The Leica Store with Museum Shop and the Leica Nature Trail are also located on site.
The Garbenheimer Warte, which was formerly known as “the old lookout tower” back in 1398, was constructed at the beginning of the 14th century. It was rediscovered during excavations at the Warthügel. The original purpose for the Garbenheimer Warte became obsolete in the early modern age. The structure was re-designated as Bismarck Turm in 1900/1901, during celebrations held in honour of General Bismarck.
3 - ROSENGÄRTCHEN
Today's Rosengärtchen, a park with an open-air stage, served as a cemetery from 1757 to 1881.
Karl Wilhelm Jerusalem, who inspired Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to his novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, was buried here, after committing suicide.
Another memorial stone commemorates Karl Kellner (1826–1855), the founder of the optics industry in Wetzlar.
4 - ALTE LAHNBRÜCKE
The Alte Lahnbrücke (Lahn Bridge) was built in the second half of the 13th century, and first mentioned in 1288.
It was part of the medieval trade route from Frankfurt to Cologne.
In order to increase its stability, the piers located in the river bed were reinforced with icebreakers.
5 - EISENMARKT
One of the first pictures of Oskar Barnack was taken here on cinema film. Taken in 1914, it shows the Eisenmarkt (iron market) and the Haus Zur Alten Münz (house of the old mint), which was built in 1599, probably on the location of a former medieval coin mint.
Based upon the French writing found on the long side of the house, it can be concluded that the builder was a member of the Walloon Reformed community of religious refugees, who were admitted to Wetzlar in 1586.
6 - DOM
The construction of the Dom (cathedral), the former collegiate and parish church Unserer Lieben Frau (Our Beloved Lady), remained unfinished. A Romanesque church building from the end of the 12th century stood on the cathedral hill on two older predecessor buildings. Around 1230 the construction of a new gothic church began with the erection of the new choir.
The construction plans have changed several times, which can still be seen today in the different architectural styles from early to late Gothic. After the magnificent south tower and the west façade were partially completed, construction work was stopped in the 15th century, due to a lack of funds. Since the Reformation until today, the church has been used simultaneously by both Christian denominations.
7 - KORNMARKT
In one of the less sloping parts of the city, the Kornmarkt (grain market) was established in the Middle Ages.
In front of the beautiful houses of this square, several street cafés and beer gardens invite you to take a break in summer.
The young Johann Wolfgang Goethe also lived on the Kornmarkt in 1772 to complete a legal internship at the Reichskammergericht (the Imperial Court of Appeal) in Wetzlar.
8 - ALTER FRIEDHOF
The Alte Friedhof (Old Cemetery of Wetzlar) represents in its entirety an architectural and artistic specialty.
Many of Wetzlar’s renowned citizens, such as Ernst Leitz, Oskar Barnack and Max Berek rest here.
The park-like grounds have recently been enriched by a new motif: since 2019, water has again been running over the cascades in front of the chapel.
Details of the walking tour can be picked up at the starting point in Leitz Park, at the reception of the Leica World in the Ernst Leitz Museum. In addition, the flyer below is available to download.
You are welcome to register for a guided motif tour at email@example.com, all details are subject to prior arrangement.
