The workplaces next to the living rooms

Work was done next to the living rooms in all floors, but especially in the basement and in the dry floor. The purchase of the round screening machine in 1883, with which especially recycled paper was recycled, made it possible for the Homburger Papiermühle to produce a profitable paperboard. Nevertheless, many manual steps remained.

In addition to tools, utensils and machinery from the 19th and 20th century v. A. a so-called “Dutchman”, a shredding machine for paper raw materials such as rags, hemp, cotton and old paper. An impressive highlight during a guided tour are the running small machines: the visitor experiences noise and technology “live”.
