Seemingly straight out of a Grimm brother’s fairy tale, the Gerlach Forge is a surprisingly new building - at least in its appearance nowadays, which only dates back to the years 1950/51. The original building, a barn with a masonry gable, was destroyed in 1945 during WWII, as well as 40% of all the city structures. The emblem of the crowned snake at the forge’s gable was designed by Georg Gerlach around 1950 and is showing a hammer and pliers as the traditional tools of the blacksmith’s craft. Below you can see a horn which was used as a bugle during the horse shoeing.

Travel Information

There are five main parking areas (P1-P5) around the city walls, providing space for roughly 1,000 vehicles and quick access to the old town. In my opinion the fee of € 5,50 for a day ticket is quite reasonable.
