Lauenau Open or Close
In 1536 the cosy and charming little place received market rights, thus becoming a market town that was to develop into the supply centre of the surrounding villages. Furthermore, Lauenau was given the right to brew beer and its own jurisdiction so that its development into a municipality with a city charter was promoted. In the late 19th century the town became a centre of the furniture manufacturing industry.
Kesselhaus Open or Close
Originally, the Kesselhaus (boiler house) belonged to a woodworking factory that closed down in 2002. In 2003 the artist Thomas Ritter and his spouse Susann Karsthof bought the building, and since 2006 it has not only been an artist's studio but also a popular location for concerts. Every year there are up to 25 concerts of different music styles - from jazz to world music to blues, indie and rock. Further information can be found on the following website: www.kesselhauslauenau.com.
