In 1975, the Year of Monument Protection, Alsfeld was awarded the distinction of model city by the Council of Europe for the successful renovating of its old quarters. The building of these old quarters resulted from a period of growth and prosperity in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, this intense building programme being due to a boom in crafts and trade, as well as the policies of the town's rulers at that time.
