The Bismarck Tower stands just a couple kilometres outside of the city centre. It was built over 100 years ago and is the last remaining tower of its kind in the Ruhr area. A visit to the tower will provide some of the best views in Muelheim. This area offers cyclist an ideal setting to pedal their way through the picturesque valley along the river.
There are many great monuments to visit in the city. Stop by the Saarn Cloister to see a church that was constructed in 1214 and was used as a convent for Cistercian nuns. There is a museum on site where exhibits show the history of the convent and the lives of the people who were connected to it.
