Every five years, the area around the Frohnauer Hammer is transformed into a festival site.

The Hammerfest has been celebrated at the historic museum for over a century.

This year the focus will be on the Frohnauer Hammer as a world heritage site with a demonstration of a real race furnace. Visitors can experience live how metal is extracted from ore. From a historical point of view, the integration of the Frohnauer Hammer into the mountain economic cycles is thematized and the prehistory of iron processing in this important place is explained.
