History

Archbishop Anno II of Cologne founded a Benedictine monastery in 1064 on top of a hill now called the Michaelsberg. A settlement that arose from that was first mentioned as a city in 1182. Siegburg reached the height of its prosperity in the 15th and 16th century. It is famous for its pottery, especially for the Siegburg pitchers (Siegburger Krüge). Since 1816 Siegburg is the county seat of the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis.
