The “Christina's Stube” museum takes visitors back to the time around 1900, when the good lounges were the only heated rooms in the house and people slept in the (often ice-cold) rooms. On the first floor of the completely original Eifel quarry stone house from the Biedermeier period, for example, a double bed allows you to think about the space required at that time: two people slept on 110 by 170 centimeters! Whoever goes through a connecting passage into the former barn, which has been converted into a residential building, can marvel at dollhouses from the period from 1880 to 1930, valuable pieces from the famous Thuringian doll factories and handmade artist dolls from well-known dollmakers. In the extension itself, the former home of the Ackermanns, a gallery was set up next to the foundation administration. On the one hand you can see pictures by Gisela Ackermann-Minwegen, on the other the exhibitions of young artists alternate. There is also a library with books from all scientific and literary areas from two centuries and a room for events relating to art and culture. A path to the local history museum has also been created from the Maifeld cycle path. Cyclists and walkers can take the old railway line to Bienengarten 6, where they can enjoy the museum, gallery and the romantic museum garden. Admission is free. A donation pot is available, the content of which is used exclusively for the maintenance of the facility.

Burg Bischofstein

Burg Bischofstein

Burg Bischofstein sits enthroned where the wide fields of the Maifeld merge into the steep slopes of the Moselle valley. Built in the 13th century, the castle was destroyed by French troops in 1689. In the first half of the 20th century, Bischofstein Castle was rebuilt in its current building structure and converted into a residential castle. The castle is used as a school camp and can be booked as group accommodation, but is not open to the public. From April to October the keep can be climbed on Fridays to Sundays!
