The beautifully restored Rommersdorf Abbey in the district of Heimbach-Weis should not be missed when visiting Neuwied. The former Premonstratensian monastery combines architectural elements of the Romanesque and Gothic periods and is regarded as a jewel among the medieval buildings in the region.
Also well worth seeing is the garden, laid out in part according to baroque originals. Around the abbey visitors will find contrasting gardens and woodlands that have been left in their natural state.
The abbey is the setting for popular cultural events. In spring the town plays host to the cloister concerts and in summer presents the festival of open-air theatre as well as the children's theatre festival.
