Schmannewitz farm museum

Discover rural history first hand at this medium-sized three-sided farm. 3,000 exhibits chronicle former working and living conditions, crafts and beekeeping. In the lovingly-furnished rooms, you will encounter numerous items of equipment, furniture, clothing and linen. Of particular interest are a 19th century mangle and a wood-burning oven. There is a lot of interesting information about grandma's school days and about the history of the area in the special temporary exhibitions. Those who are interested in agriculture should also take a look in the former barn. There are striking museum artefacts to admire such as tools, vehicles and threshing machines. The farm museum is open every Wednesday from 16:30 to 17:30 and every Sunday from 14:30 to 16:00. Special events take place on selected dates, such as the bread-baking show and the harvest festival.
