In the picture below it is pointed out that the lot action takes place in favor of the Königshütte.
The circle reads 'Lauterberger helfen sich', the motto and name of the Facebook group.

Our members have already known about it because of the annual Christmas letter: The Facebook group 'Lauterberger helfen sich' (‘Citizens of Bad Lauterberg help each other’). This Facebook group has dedicated this year's Christmas campaign to our support group. With a success that left me speechless. Who is this group? Behind it are Matthias Koch, Stephan Oppermann and Manuela Lunk, from Bad Lauterberg. They are the administrators of the group and Facebook page. The group has been active for seven years. - People from Bad Lauterberg know about the group. - It provides information on questions in everyday life (for example, who knows a good pediatrician), in all areas where help is needed. For example, their members donated home-baked goods for our bake sale at the Hüttenschenke on 'Open Monument Day' last year. And ... every year at Christmas it does a campaign for a good cause. In the group itself there were well over 100 action packages offered to her this year. These packages are created by asking people to donate items that they no longer need themselves, but that could still please others. All the proceeds from them are donated. The sale of these donations supports associations, for example, and honors their work. This year one of the beneficiaries was the Königshütte.

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 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.
