Cabinet Exhibition in the Historic Library

[Translate to Englisch:] Eine historische Abbildung zeigt Bergleute bei der Arbeit

The cabinet exhibition presents people in their working environment as depicted in historical copperplate engravings and woodcuts from the library of the Francke Foundations. The structural completion of the renovated and restored ensemble of the Francke Foundations, which took place this year, is based on the building activities that characterized the early years of the Glaucha Institutions. This component is just as much a part of the exhibition as the urban theme year »Halexa, siede Salz!« places a special focus on the working environment of the salt people and the history of the salt works and salt mines.

Due to the Corona pandemic, only a few visitors can view the exhibition at the same time, so we invite you to take a tour from the comfort of your own home in an online exhibition.
