Audio guide: Audioguide Hüttenmuseum Thale [EN]


Have you ever wondered how steel is made? Or what iron powder is used for? Then there’s the oldest enamelling plant for household utensils – where do you think that might have been? And what about the environmental fallout from its presence? The Thale Hüttenmuseum provides answers to all those questions.

The museum presents the history of iron smelting and iron processing by drawing on the example of the Thale Ironworks in the Northern Harz region. In Thale, the development of ferrous metallurgy began in the Middle Ages. A sheet metal works was founded in 1686, and in the 20th century, that evolved into a major industrial operation, the Thale Ironworks.
