    Iron ore is still the metal. Today as well. What do we make of it?!? Wire alone is not just wire, but also braid, for example. Exciting.

    << Iron Ore >>
    "... The rock in the Märkisches Sauerland region contains a lot of iron ore. The red, brown and clay iron stone found close to the surface was first extracted from the open-cast mine; you can still see the digging holes in the woods, so-called ping. The iron ore-bearing rock obtained in this way was further processed in racing furnaces that were built in the immediate vicinity of the iron ore nests, which gives the name Iserlohn: Iser = iron, wage = Forest ...

    Iserlohn fairy tale trail. To the left and right of the path you will find fairytale scenes as well as solvable tasks and small puzzles for children. The fairy tales can also be read aloud using QR codes. With the answer and the numbers found, you open the fairy tale treasure chest and you can take a little souvenir with you. Great!
