The early metalworking history of the area is excellently captured and remodelled. There are so many themed houses that a whole afternoon just flies by - there are also facilities for sustenance of young and old

Great place to see, if you are interested in German industrial history like forging, paper production, beer brewing, rope making and many other things. Please be aware, that the visit will take you min. 3-4 hours and a lot of (uphill) walking is required. The...More
