Information

Viticulture has a centuries-old tradition in Klingenberg. In 1261, vineyards "on the high mountain" owned by the inns of Klingenberg were first mentioned. The wine established Klingenberg's fame, but the city owes its former wealth to the clay pit. In two show tunnels the mining methods of the past and present are documented. Graphics and photosgraphs explain the origin of the clay deposit and its degradation. A collection of old mine lamps, ceramics, uniforms and documents provide useful information about the mine. A room on the ground floor houses the entire Röllfeld village smithy with chimney, bellows, anvil, numerous machines and tools. The cooperage and wagon shop are combined in the basement. Both branches of the craft were indispensable for the winemaker. The care of the vines in the vineyard, the grape harvest, the pressing of the grapes and the expansion of the wine until bottling is shown on the ground floor of the museum. A collection of glasses and bottles as well as many photos complete the topic.
