Soest - tomorrow’s technology in a historical place

For your stay during CyberKnife® treatment, the city of Soest offers patients and their families an historic setting and an attractive recreational landscape that also boasts perfect transport connections.

Many impressive buildings, including, for example, “Wiesenkirche”, one of Germany’s most beautiful late Gothic hall churches (1313), bear witness to more prosperous Hanseatic times when Soest—the “secret capital city of Westphalia”—was one of the state's most important towns. In the heart of the city centre, the mighty Roman St. Patrokli tower—also known as the tower of Westphalia—reigns over the town, dwarfing the famous 12th century Nikolai Chapel just a few steps away. Only the pedestrian area separates St. Patrokli from St. Petri, the “Alden Kerke”, one of Westphalia’s oldest churches dating back to the 8th century.

The people of Soest are extremely proud of their almost completely intact city wall. Even today, you can walk on the old wall around the city and see the green gardens of the old town. And do not forget to pay a visit to “Osthofentor”. This is the last of the town’s former ten gates. A walk along the ramparts and moats, the latter also called “Gräften”, is an experience not to be missed, but is best enjoyed during the spring blossom or—for collectors and bargain hunters—when the regions’ biggest flea market that attracts 40,000 visitors meanders through the “Gräften”.

The people of Soest definitively know how to preserve their heritage and to bring it to new life. Private initiatives work hand in hand with public institutions to achieve outstanding success: sandstone-churches and half-timbered houses are lovingly restored, historic buildings are given a new purpose and the town is constantly undergoing regeneration. Over 600 buildings are listed. Soon the “Soestbach” will once again be surrounded by parks, streets with half-timbered buildings and cobblestone pavements to form another highlight of the old town.

Soest also offers a host of different cultural attractions. From A to Z, from “Altstadtfieber” to “Zappelparty”, there is something there for everybody to enjoy.

Thanks to “Bürgerzentrum Alter Schlachthof” and “Veranstaltungs Centrum Stadthalle Soest” all kinds of music and theatre performances are on offer. Meanwhile, the city is also frequently visited by top German comedians. What’s more, Soest offers a range of major annual events, such as “Soester Kneipen Festival”—the Soest Pub Festival—in March (please note, this event is quickly sold out!), “Bördetag” in May, “Sommerliche Musiktage”—Summer Music Days—or “Allerheiligenkirmes”—the Halloween Funfair in November. The latter has been acclaimed Europe’s largest inner-city funfair and is therefore a true mega event: five days of true fun with more than one million visitors on 60,000 sqm of fairground—an atmosphere comparable to Cologne’s Carnival celebrations.

Several museums (“Burghofmuseum”, “Osthofentormuseum”, “Feuerwehrmuseum”, Museum der belgischen Streitkräfte in Deutschland”, “Technikmuseum” as well as “Wilhelm-Morgner-Haus”) are open to visitors. Soest also played an important role in the lives of some famous painters, such as Heinrich Aldegrever, Otto Modersohn, Wilhelm Morgner, Christian Rohlfs and Hans Kaiser.

What is a concert or visit to the theatre without dropping into an inviting restaurant or cosy pub afterwards? No problem in Soest—we have everything from historical inns to rustic music pubs or international specialty restaurants. For instance, “Pilgrimhaus”, Westphalia’s oldest inn, where guests have been excellently served since 1304.

Beside our numerous restaurants and churches you can also shop to your heart’s content in the historical old town. From hot deals to luxury articles, you can walk everywhere. A fact enjoyed not just by the town’s 50,000 inhabitants, but also by the 180,000 inhabitants living in the greater Soest area.

For those living in Soest, sports, leisure and nearby recreational areas are what make life so enjoyable here. Mountain biking at “Naturpark Arnsberger Wald”, sailing on “Möhnesee”, golf, tennis, riding, paragliding as well as parachuting: all of these activities are just 15 minutes away by car.

By the way, living in Soest is always affordable. Depending on taste, you can choose from a new modern style development area or the attractive medieval setting of the old town district. Besides, as a district capital, Soest is home to many transregional authorities.
