Everyone knows charcoal. You can now buy them industrially manufactured in every hardware store or supermarket.
But hardly anyone knows how it was traditionally made by hand in the past.
This is exactly what the Harzköhlerei Stemberghaus shows us in its charcoal burner museum on a true-to-the-original wooden kiln. But not only that! Watch the smoking piles and watch the charcoal burner at work. Because here the charcoal is actually still produced in-house and can be purchased on site. In addition to the production, visitors learn everything about the wood harvest and processing, the historical equipment and the life of the charcoal burners in the Harz Mountains.
In addition to the charcoal burner museum, there is also a charcoal burner shop and a rustic charcoal burner's hut with rustic food. The Harzköhlerei Stemberghaus has been certified and awarded the "Typisch Harz" label as a regional company.
You should definitely plan a visit during your Harz vacation. Perhaps you will also find a typical Harz holiday souvenir?
