Frohnauer Hammer is one of the most famous destinations and points of interest in the Ore Mountains.
It is the oldest museum in the city, having arisen from a flour mill constructed in 1436 that later served as a coin and hammer forge. Until 1904, tools for mining and farming were produced here.
The museum tour starts by showing visitors the historic hammer forge, where the small hammer and functional bellows are demonstrated. An exhibit on the upper floor displays the objects that were once created here. The presentation in the Folk Art Gallery (Volkskunstgalerie) opposite the mill is dedicated to topics involving mining and the folk art of carving. The tour concludes in the manor house completed in 1697. In the living quarters of the former hammer master’s family, the Martin family, a bobbin lace maker will explain and demonstrate the traditional technique of Ore Mountain bobbin lacemaking.
