    Nicely located in the park of Salzelmen. Especially people with breathing problems can take a deep breath there - even in the cooler season. If you feel like climbing the building, you can register for it on the website of the graduation center in Salzelmen.

    Together with the boiling, it explains very clearly how brine processing, transport and salt extraction worked.

    The Gradierwerk, which was built by the Prussian state between 1756 and 1765 (due to the Seven Years' War) to increase the salinity of the brine in the immediate vicinity of the Elmener brine springs, originally had a length of 1323 meters. The construction plans, which had been tested by the mathematician Leonhard Euler, worked out the mountain captain Jacob Sigismund Waitz von Eschen. The plant, which was a technical masterpiece, was eventually extended to 1837 meters, making it the largest ever built graduation tower. Its economic importance lost it after the completion of the Schönebecker salt mine and the transition to the spray process for brine extraction in underground mining.
