Kannenbäckerland Route: Variety between potteries, Westerwald Cathedral and Erlenhof Lake
Depending on when I take this tour, I visit the Westerwald Ceramics Museum in Höhr-Grenzhausen before or after, the largest of its kind in the world. The town is one of the centers in Kannenbäckerland, the land of pottery. From the Schlossberg in Grenzau, the castle with its triangular keep greets us on the left. Later, when I arrive in Selters, I take some time to explore the historic town center of this village, which is one of the oldest in the Westerwald. I continue to Mogendorf. Here, wonderful ceramic objects are produced partly by hand in the many potteries, most of which have the typical salt glaze of the Kannenbäckerland. In Siershahn waits the Tonbergbaumuseum, which is open in the afternoons between April and November and otherwise by appointment. In Wirges, I like to visit the Westerwald Cathedral, and the Sculpture and Miniature Museum in the Fackelhahn/Rohr industrial park on the A 3 also attracts me with its large collection.
