The studio is located in the antique premises of an old blacksmith`s shop from the 15th century. Around 1840 it was used by Peter Tunner, a professor of the Montanuniversity which was located in Vordernberg at this time (nowadays in Loeben). He was teaching his students how to treat and temper steel. That`s where the name "Lehrfrischhuette" comes from.

Everybody has the opportunity to visit the smithy museum and studio. Please call us for an appointment.
