Meyerode

Description

The name 'Meyerode' implies that this village came into being following the clearance of an area with marshland and woods, like most of the villages whose names end in -rode or -rath (e.g. Wallerode, Atzerath, Rocherath). During excavation work, a stone slab with an engraved cross was found. Archaeologists have come to the conclusion that there must have been a church in Meyerode as early as the 6th or 7th century. Today, the slab can be seen on the left next to the stairway leading up to the church in the enclosing wall.
