Hammermuseum opens again

Hammermuseum opens to 03.06.2021!

Hasloch, 18.05.2021 Finally the time has come and the hammer museum can be opened again. Specifically, the doors in Hasloch go open on 03 June from 11:00 - so still during the Whitsun vacations in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. "We are pleased that the pandemic situation has eased so much that we can now open," says hammer master Walter Kurtz. The opening is accompanied by a comprehensive hygiene concept, which provides for the registration of visitors as well as the presentation of a negative rapid or antigen test - or confirmation of full vaccination protection. Iron hammer enthusiasts can look forward to an updated, expanded exhibition - starting on 03.06. directly on site at the Hammer Museum in Hasloch!

Updated and expanded exhibition

Friends of the iron hammer can look forward to the updated and expanded exhibition – including a genuine nail tree, around which many a story is entwined. Probably the oldest nail tree can still be seen in Vienna near St. Stephen´s Cathedral, where it has stood since around 1550.

Since the beginning of the 18th century it was the custom of traveling blacksmiths to immortalize themselves with an individual nail. The presumed reason for nailing a trunk was the ancient custom of hammering nails into crosses, trees or rocks to protect oneself from illness or to give thanks for a cure. Iron nails were a valuable commodity in the Middle Ages and were not carelessly thrown away. You can find out more about the nail tree and the company history of Kurtz Ersa on site from 3th of June: in the Hammermuseum in Hasloch!
