The City of Siegen
With around 104,000 citizens Siegen is the economic and cultural center of the Upper Siegerland-Wittgenstein region. Located in the border triangle of Nordrhein-Westfalen, Hesse and Rheinland-Pfalz. Siegen’s a commercial, university, and congress, shopping town tucked away in the countryside. There are approximately 600,000 people living in the catchment area of the town. It’s history begins long before the actual founding of the town in the year 1224. There is a history of more than 2,500 years of iron ore mining and smelting. Mining ceased in the early sixties, but today the Reinhold-Forster-Erbstolln is a tourist mine where you can look back on the long tradition of the Siegerland ore mining.Located within an area of outstanding natural beauty, Siegen is a modern city with an extensive retail sector, and a wide range of services on offer. The historical landmarks and cultural offerings are of metropolitan standard; the new Apollo theatre presents top-class theatre and events. The impressive and newly modernised Siegerlandhalle is stunning, and offers a variety of cultural and cabaret performances. Frequently changing art exhibitions in the urban galleries round off the wide-ranging attractions.
