Opening hours: Temporarily closed.
In the building serving as a home for the Bakery Museum a bakery was run as early as in the 16th century. In 1972, after the death of the last owner the town bought the building together with all its equippments. So the museum can give a realistic picture of the old bakeries.

Because of the small extention of the city most of the gilds were excluded out of the walls. They lived and worked in the North-west part of the town. If you take a walk in the nearby streets, you can sense the unique athmosphere of those times.

The bakery is situated in the right wing of the baker's house. The huge oven, the kneading bowl, the working table, the dough-baskets and the rising boxes are all seen here. The former flour store was formed into a confectionery workshop. The worker could not go far from the workshop even during the night, so a little chamber was made for him for little periods of dozing. The shop was in the front room facing the street. In later times this room was divided into two parts, thus forming the confectionery. So the old scales and bread shelves of the bakery, and the small tables and chairs of the confectionery are found in their original places.

We can enter the baker's flat to the right of the entrance gate. The two small rooms and the kitchen well represent the life-style and dwelling habits of the family at the end of the 19th century.

The workers had always owned a small vineyard and as a supplementary business they were selling wine. The long benches and the special table at the gate definitely prove this. Many of the workers were growing beans among the grape vines.
