Agricultural Museum in Reitscheid

    The farmhouse in Reitscheid was built in 1862 and had total of 200 m² of usable space.
    The clearly structured facade with its windows and doors framed in natural stone is typical for a south-west German farmhouse. A large courtyard, a garden and expansive meadows can be found in front of the two-story residential house with basement. South-west German farmhouses, as well as the Lorraine-style farmhouses that are found across Saarland, are 'single houses', where the domestic and economic sections are housed under one roof. The furniture, farming equipment, household items and even the crockery and pictures on the walls are reminiscent of the lives of the people who once lived in this farmhouse. Numerous exhibits, including old agricultural machinery and equipment, provide museum visitors with an impression of the life and work of the rural population here around 150 years ago.

    Thanks to its special ambience and the vaulted cellar, the agriculture museum is often used as a venue for handicraft courses, song and music evenings and poetry readings.
