Soest : Michelin's recommendations
The rapid growth and increase in wealth of this former member of the Hanseatic League can be traced to salt extraction in the Early Middle Ages, which enabled the development of trade and made Soest the unofficial capital of Westphalia. In 1444 the Soest Feud broke out: the town parted company with its feudal lord, the Archbishop of Cologne, and allied itself with the Duke of Cleves, losing its strategic trade advantages in the process. The strange greenish sandstone of its buildings contributes to Soest's unique character.
