Altenberg is an area in the municipality of Odenthal in the Rheinisch-Bergischer Kreis of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and was formerly the seat of the Counts of Berg. Over the course of time they created around their Residence a small dominion, which later came to be called the Bergisches Land. The most imposing building in Altenberg today is the high-Gothic Altenberg Cathedral, begun in 1259.
