Bike Touring Highlight
The Saline Luisenhall in Grone, a district of Göttingen, is by its own admission the last in operation commercial Pfannensiederei Europe. The saline planted in the Leinetal, built by Philipp Rohns, began salt production in 1854. After the early death of the company founder in 1860, the company went into the hands of the Göttingen family Levin in 1881 after several changes of ownership in 1881, which led the company until the beginning of the 1990s. Until today, the natural brine extracted from an underground salt storage is crystallized in open pans according to a principle used since the Middle Ages.
Old walls. Here you smell something the industrialization with the adjoining residential building of the industrial family. But, actually, it's about the promotion of salt from the depths. And, until today, this salt can be purchased in the region and used for cooking. And then there is the possibility to bathe in eighteen percent salt water. This is Dead Sea feeling. Highly recommended, after e.g. a challenging mountain bike tour. ;-)
