The hostel museum is located at Bergstraße 15 in Blankenburg (Harz) . It is the only historical journeyman's hostel in Germany with a museum. In the 1684 built timber-framed house was located from 1884 to 1916 a hostel for proper traveling journeymen of all trades. In addition to a thematic exhibition and historical collection on journeyman life, you can also see the spatial conditions at that time with the inner courtyard, stable, laundry room, kitchen, lodging room and restaurant room.
In cooperation with existing shafts (the righteous foreigners , the Rolandschacht , the foreign freedom shaft , the Society of Free Vogtland Germany , ax and trowel , the free meeting shaft and the CCEG ) the museum is supported in terms of content and finances. The Brotherhood of the Rose from Quedlinburg and the Leipzig Gewandhaus journeyman also play a role here.
A further collection of materials as well as a library of the crafts complete the museum. Exhibits from the estate of two journeyman carpenters from the North Harz vividly show the waltz at the beginning of the 20th century in German-speaking countries.
The non-profit "Friends of the Blankenburger Herbergsmuseum" helps maintain this unique museum.
Even today the hostel is a meeting place for foreign and local journeymen.
