Bone stamper: a museum of local history
Heimatmuseum Knochenstampfe

Being a technical monument and cultural centre, the museum of local history is a popular destination for tour and hiking groups as well as for families. It is situated in an old heritage-protected farmhouse with a lozenge-shaped timber frame construction which is unique in the region. The main attraction is a workable bone stamper, a machine that smashes bones to produce fertilzer, driven by a water wheel.
Moreover, the museum includes attractions like an exhibition about traditional hosiery knitting, an ornithological exposition and a collection of historical Weihnachtsberge (“Christmas hills – traditional sceneries made of wood, paper, plaster and plastics that show the life of Jesus or regional landscapes). Another room is dedicated to Samuel Pufendorf, a jurist, political philosopher, economist, statesman, and historian and the most important son of this region, who was born here in 1632. The museum also hosts other regularly changing exhibitions.

Opening hours:
Wednesday – Saturday:
10.00 – 12.00 and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
