A landmark of the Linden industrial history
Telephone: (0511) - 45 50 01
Opening times: by arrangement
The boiler house on the grounds of the former Bettfedernfabrik Werner & Ehlers is an important symbol of industrialization in Linden. As one of the last witnesses, it reminds us with its chimney and the boiler of a past industrial culture that has shaped this district for more than 150 years. The Kesselhaus is the last surviving architectural monument of this era in Linden-Nord.
"The Kesselhaus is symbolic of Linden's ancient industry in many respects, and for these reasons the preservation and use of this monument is of considerable value to the cityscape and the historical tradition of the old industrial town of Linden." (Prof. Dr. Walter Buschmann, expert on monument protection and industrial history, Cologne)
Admission for individual visitors is free. We would like a donation to help pay for the upkeep of the boliler house.
