Landschaftsmuseum Westerwald

The museum shows the cultural history of the Westerwald from the 18th to the 20th century. In charming parkland on the outskirts of Hachenburg you can experience rural living, living and working in eight typical buildings in the region, as was common in the Westerwald for a long time until around 1960.A barn, a bakery and an oil mill demonstrate the self-sufficiency of the farmers. Exhibitions illustrate how carpenters, potters, blacksmiths and other craftsmen made their equipment. Of course, the village school, in which all students were taught together in one room, should not be missing. Kitchen and medicinal herbs, flowers, garden and field crops are grown on garden areas. In between, boundary stones, crosses or gravestones keep the lives of grandparents and great-grandparents alive from birth to funeral.
