Craft and Art in the Museum of Sandstone
The Museum of Sandstone in Havixbeck introduces a stone with history.
Baumberger Sandstone - that's not only a building material but also a high-class sculpture material.
This fine-grained stone has been worked in the quarries nearby Havixbeck (at the Baumberge, wich means tree mountains) for 1000 years. Since that time it has been used - especially in the medieval age - in Northern Germany, in the Netherlands and in the Baltic States.
