'Glück auf' is written on the plaque, it is the miners' greeting and means 'luck on'

Due to the new Corona Ordinance, guided tours of the Königshütte site and the industrial monument are cancelled until further notice. This applies for the time being to the guided tours in November. We will inform you as soon as possible about how it will continue in December.

Guided tours will again take place on the premises of the ‘Königshütte’, the next one on this Tuesday from 3 pm at the hut fountain. Since a few weeks there are also some innovations for the visitors and also the project "Renovation of the machine factory" is in the starting blocks.

The ‘Königshütte’ in Bad Lauterberg is a testimony to the former iron ore mining and machine building as well as the foundry operation, which was finally closed down in 2001.

With the help of QR codes and a new website, the Bad Lauterberg Königshütte can also be experienced by visitors outside of guided tours.

The new website of the royal hut at https://www.koenigshuette-badlauterberg.de is optimized for mobile devices and can therefore be used well on site with the smartphone. In addition to this, the Förderkreis der Königshütte has attached so-called QR codes to the buildings of the historical ensemble: if one photographs these rectangular codes, the smartphone recognizes the Internet address encoded in them and guides the user directly to the page on which the building in question is described. In this way, a self-determined tour of the Königshütte with a lot of historical information is possible. All texts are available in both German and English.
