International Museum Day - 21 May 2023 - was satisfactory

guided tour in front of the factory house - 2023_05_21

Attendance on this year's International Museum Day, 21 May, was initially restrained, but developed quite satisfactorily. The new owner couple had also travelled from Hamburg to be there and to have conversations with one or the other.

The day began with a church service, the pastor was accompanied musically on the accordion. From 11 a.m. there were guided tours, almost 100 people took part in the four tours, among them a group of senior citizens from Dortmund. One of the senior citizens told us that she used to live in the kings’ hut (Koenigshuette), in the hut tavern (Huettenschenke. After the management had houses built in Hüttenstraße, she and her family moved to hut street (Huettenstraße)  - This street leads directly onto the grounds of the kings’ hut (Koenigshuette). Here it was much more comfortable, there was a bathroom and running water.

From 11 a.m. the café in the hut tavern was open, there were again very delicious cakes and pies, they were donated as every year from privat bakers of Bad Lauterberg. The cakes donated by two local cafés from Bad Lauterberg were also delicious as usual.

At 12 noon, our barbecue in front of the iron magazine opend,  visitors could buy and enjoy roasted sausage and curry sausage as well as steaks.

From 2 pm, a barrel organ player provided musical entertainment on the grounds. Children danced to his sounds.

There was also popcorn and lollipops for the little ones at a stall selling honey and products made from honey such as soap. The stall showing chair weaving was unfortunately not so popular, but the show casting was again a real crowd puller. The foundryman who has been presenting the show casting at the kings’ hut (Koenigshuette) with his helpers for years turned 90 this year.

Thanks to the good weather, it was a successful museum day overall.

hut guide for the kings’ hut (Koenigshuette)

In 2021, the Harz Tourism Association (head office: Goslar) started a study to show how the six cultural institutions that belong to the district of Göttingen - the Museum  in the Herzberg Castle, the Borderland Museum Bad Sachsa, the Unicorn Cave Scharzfeld, the Cave Experience Centre Iberg Dripstone Cave and the Cistercian Museum Walkenried Monastery - could get more public attention. There were several meetings on this, among others at Herzberg Castle and kings hut (Königshütte), because on these two cultural institutions were the main focus. On 13 February this year the final presentation took place in the Hotel Freizeit In in the city of Göttingen, alongside the mayors in whose towns these six cultural institutions are to be found, Mr Harald Dietzmann/Bad Grund, Mr Christopher Wagner/Town of Herzberg, Mr Daniel Quade/Town of Bad Sachsa, Mr Rolf Lange/Town of Bad Lauterberg and Mr Lars Deiters/Town of Wieda, Zorge and Walkenried, the team from the Harz Tourism Association was of course represented, such as the Managing Director Mrs Carola Schmidt and the museum educator Mrs Melanie Krilleke, who was responsible for the project part concerning the kings hut in Bad Lauterberg (Königshütte), representatives from the district of Göttingen, Mrs Vettel from the landscape association of south lower saxony (Landschaftsverband

 Südniedersachsen e. V.), representatives of Tourist Informations and - as representatives of the support group of the Königshütte - Mrs Grzyb, Mr Hillegeist and Mr Mühl.  And - of course - Mr Marcel Riethig, District Administrator of the Göttingen District, did not miss the opportunity to attend this event.

A guide to the kings hut (Königshütte) hut was produced by Melanie Krilleke and her team colleagues.
