One of the most interesting old towns in southern Westphalia is the medieval town of Freudenberg located in the Siegen-Wittgenstein district, in Germany. The old part of the town called “Alter Flecken” consists entirely of half-timbered houses – about 50 of them, arranged in rows. They are almost the same size, are all whitewashed and have similar-looking slate roofs. Most of these houses are from the 17th century when the town was ravaged by fire and had to be rebuilt.
