Holidays and Trips to the Small Cities in Europe. 
 Excursion to Small Town Jülich, Roman. Around the city where both families live, there are many small towns. Its population average under fifty thousand souls. Though small towns are also worth a visit, in our opinion. Its history was no less exciting than the big cities even metropolis.

Of approximately 30 thousand inhabitants, Jülich may only be classified as a village in our land. Here, however, has been regarded as a small town, with a complete facility, including a mall. Jülich stood when the Romans still ruled in approximately the third century BC. At that time the area became Roman citizens station stops between Boulogne-sur-Mer and Köln (Cologne). The city was controlled by different generations of nobility, before 97 percent destroyed by a bomb in 1945. Its inhabitants were originally numbered 12 thousand inhabitants, dropping to a hundred people.

From the station, the town center Jülich could ditempu on foot. It's about the only way kilometer.Ikuti the right direction from the exit of the station. If you ride the city bus, only one stop only. This is the easiest route to the heart of the city.

On the second visit, we chose a different route, follow the road to the left of the archway. Past the houses, and the city park. We want to take Aachener Tor, the remaining gate of the old city walls Jülich. This brick building located between the grove. Looked deserted. Only we are being visited and photographed.

Not far away, seemed a symbol of the city, Hexenturm name. Are two gates, the only one remaining from the Middle Ages. The shape is very beautiful. Two top of the tower with a large gate in the middle. Made from pieces of natural stone, the tower now serves as a museum of town history Jülich.

The journey then continues to Bruckenkopf. Also just tens of meters from Hexenturm. This building is the former fort, built in the time of Napoleon. See the appearance from the outside, looks like a building Bruckenkopf hill in the stomach. The surrounding water. According to its function as a defense. Sign up here imposed tariffs.

We can not be entered, but continued our journey to Zitadelle through city hall. It's city hall is right in the heart of the city. close to shops and cafes. There is a small square in the center of the common features benches and some of the children's games.

Zitadelle can find dozens of meters away. Just like Bruckenkopf, Zitadelle formerly part of the Jülich Jülich Festung (fortress). Is one of the best the rest of the defense system in Germany. Zitadelle was built in 1545 AD as part of the Renaissance ideal city.
