Frohnauer Hammer, Annaberg-Buchholz: 1 reviews and 5 photos
The technical monument is located in the suburb of Frohnau. The hammer works date from the 17th century and have been in operation until 1904. Water power is used to drive the large heavy hammers. The blacksmiths of the hammer produced iron tools and devices for mining and farming, and also for military purposes.
The machinery consists of a water wheel and a wooden construction that transfers the power to three hammers of different size. The smallest weighs 100 kgs, the largest 300 kg. The machinery is still fully functional.
The hammer can be visited with guided tours, during which the smallest of the three hammers is shown in operation. The museum visit also includes an exhibition of Ore Mountains folk art and the historical house of the master of the hammer, but unfortunately our group was in such a hurry that we did not have time for these.l
