Uedem is a small community on the Lower Rhine with the districts of Keppeln, Uedem, Uedemerbruch and Uedemerfeld in which around 8000 inhabitants live. Embedded in the Lower Rhine landscape, the municipality offers a high recreational value as well as numerous opportunities for cycling, hiking and horse riding. The historic town center is also particularly worth seeing. Here you will find some sights such as the bronze sculptures that are located at the former locations of the city gates. Also worth seeing is the Seemannbrunnen (sailor fountain) at the market, which is in the immediate vicinity of the Evangelische Kirche Uedem. St. Laurentius Church is only about 100 meters away, which is a good starting point to start a tour of the city!
Other attractions in Uedem include the cobbler’s memorial on Lohstraße, the memorial on Viehstraße and the historic building of the old Schlüterei on Turmwall. Just outside the city center is a historic mill, the so-called Hohe Mühle, which was built in stone in the 13th century and is one of the oldest windmills of its kind on the Lower Rhine. Today it serves as a lookout tower and offers a view of the charming Lower Rhine landscape. Also worth mentioning is the Kolk House, a former knight’s residence from the 14th century that is still family-owned today.
