Town museum, Belgern

Belgern’s town museum is housed in fine style in one of the town’s oldest premises, the old forge at 7 Topfmarkt There is a wealth of historical information about Belgern in the main room on the ground floor. This illustrates the importance of the River Elbe to the town’s development, as well as to the development of trades, farming, brewing, viticulture, markets and the area’s jurisdiction, and significant finds of coins in the region. Of particular note are a beer sign from 1783, which would have indicated that beer was being served on licensed premises, the district court’s crucifix, donated by Mayor Kaulisch in 1681 and used in the town’s district courts until 1935 and the Döhnerwiesen Society’s chest from the middle of the 18th century. The mile post’s original text and coat of arms can also be seen.
