Remscheid, Germany - 1st July 2013

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today Katja promised us to show us an historic location while taking a walk. So we left the house and walked towards a valley, picking up a friend who wanted to come with us.

We walked through a rather old district where we saw many of those traditional houses, they are covered with slate.

Deep in the valley we came along this steelworks where stainless steel is produced.

We left the roads and followed a hiking path through the valley.

We found a fantastic place in the forest - an historic hammer mill.
Iron and steel was produced here since 15th century.

The hammer mill was run by a water wheel, all those hammer mills and forges were built at a creek or river.

A large millwheel was lying on the ground.

When we walked back home we had to walk uphill all the time :)

Bye
