The Kunstgiesserei Lauchhammer Foundry, the oldest in Germany, is situated in picturesque surrounding of Southern Brandenburg on the boundary with Saxony. This land of masters has been widely-known by its rich traditions of bronze and iron casting, glass and porcelain production.
The foundry Kunstgiesserei Lauchhammer has been operational since 1725. From 1780 the foundry steadily collected and kept the originals of sculpture models and forms more than 2800 created by famous German artists (Lepcke, Rietschel, Schinkel, Kolbe, Breuer, Mooshage, etc).
The Kunstguss Lauchhammer Museum offers a show of sculptural artworks of various genres and forms cast in the foundry in different times.
