Im Papiermuseum erlebt Ihr die Herstellung und den Gebrauch von Papier in den letzten 200 Jahren.
The PM4, a paper machine dating from 1889, which is forty metres long and five metres high, demonstrates the progress that has been made in industrialisation. Paper theatres, friendship booklets, historical packaging and other paper products were some of the ways paper was used in the past and provide information about the changes in education opportunities, the development from self-sufficiency to shopping at the supermarket, and modern hygiene standards. Today, millions of tonnes of paper are produced every year - what that means for our environment is also made clear.
The idyllic outdoor areas have further historical machines and various plants from which paper can be made. How the papermaker families lived in the 19th century can be experienced in a small worker's house.
The rustic "Alte Dombach" café invites you to take a break. And the little ones can let off some steam at the large playground - including a muddy play area, all in tune with the theme of the paper mill.
An annual paper festival takes place in May/June, and the popular paper market in August/September.
