1. and July 2
Historical market
History comes alive: this weekend, craftsmen and traders set up their stalls around the Emsland Archaeology Museum at the Koppelschleuse and offer goods and craft techniques from more than eight centuries between 11 am and 6 pm.
Craftsmen and merchants travel from near and far to advertise unusual goods for sale and demonstrate ancient craft techniques at the historic market in the museum garden. The offer ranges from Roman woodwork and bone work, spinning, weaving and dyeing in the Middle Ages, handmade buttons and fishing from the 18th century, bobbin lace, ceramics, wooden shoes, jams and liqueurs, beekeeping, leather and fur work, and comparatively “modern” handmade soaps from the 1940s. All booth operators appear in historically recreated costumes, providing a colorful picture of fashion change over the centuries. Young visitors can try out historical games at a booth and the Emspiraten section of the Lingen Kivelinge will be on site with their hand-operated carousel. The Café Koppelschleuse provides for the physical well-being of the guests.
