an ancient craft rediscovered
Soaking, un-hairing, pickling: Learn everything there is to know about the fascinating steps of leather production. With the help of info boards and audio stations, you are taken farther and farther into the details of the tanning process!
The craft of the tanner looks back on a long tradition here on the shores of Waginger See. Since the end of the 16th century, five different lines of tanners produced leather in all its variations. At the experimental Tannery Museum in Tittmoning, you will be able to actively “grasp” this ancient craft, amid the historic vaulted setting of the old granary.
The foundation for this intriguing journey into the past here in Tittmoning is provided by an extensive collection which came from a tannery once run by the Wandinger family (1878 two 1953). During its regular opening hours, you’re welcome to visit the museum at no charge. Guided tours can also be arranged upon request.
