About this offer

Duration:   1 hour 15 minutes

What should a weaver do if he misses the founding of the "Guild of weavers and linen weavers"? You don't let it get you down but do your best in order to join the cooperation officially recognized by the bishop.

On an enjoyable walking tour of the history of the "Guild of weavers" you will meet guild masters with their spouses from times gone by and see spiky but finely crafted tools, experience both tragic and absurd events up close - including an exclusive insight into matchmaking rituals - and finally get an idea of the luxury and wealth that prevailed in the guild hall.
