Experience and understand craftsmanship

"Experience and understand craftsmanship" is the motto on the forecourt of the "Liebfrauenkirche". A number of craftspeople, such as glassblowers, foremen, ivory makers and wood sculptors, show their skills and allow the visitors to  participate directly in the development process.The main focus is on preformance, not only the finished product. For example, with a little help by glassblower Hans Harder, you will be able to make your own glass and discover the fundamentals of glass art.Traditional bakery is shown in the traditional old town bakery "Klein's Backstüffje", in the heart of Koblenz
