Roscheider Hof Estate
The clock tower ...or how time is measured: When you have a digital watch on your wrist you can hardly imagine what it was like for the rural population over the centuries who oriented themselves to the position of the sun or at least to the midday and evening church bells.
The permanent exhibition of tin figures (the tin figure museum) from the collection of Prof. Dr. Gerteis was opened on 8th May 2005. There are many thousands of figures arranged in the estate's 220 m2 loft, by no means not only tin soldiers but a small world made of tin, as it were.
20th century trades (2):So many visitors enjoyed looking at life in earlier times as it has been shown in our first shop alley for 10 years that we decided to install another one in the upper floor of the east wing with a number of shops from a purchase of recently closed stores.
Since the spring of 2015 the hat shop that used to be located on Brotstraße 26, Trier is in our museum in the archway that leads to the inner courtyard. The shop has been run by the Georg family for six generations. Perhaps they even used to manufacture hats themselves in earlier times.
