War Memorial Nienborg

A high sandstone cross, framed by a low wall with name plates, commemorates the war victims from 1870 to 1945. The monument was inaugurated in 1978 on the site of the old cemetery on the Steinweg.
To its right is a former memorial made of sandstone. Built in 1925, it initially stood on the main street near the historic watermill. During the renovation works on the watermill, the old monument got its current location in 2017.
