Blacksmith courses at the Rammelsberg – Create your own Tscherperknife

Also known today as a Tscherper, this hand-forged knife was an indispensable universal tool for every miner. He used it for all sorts of jobs like cleaning the lights, repairing the equipment and checking the wooden tunnel support, which was vital for survival. By sticking the cherp into the wood, the miner made sure whether the wood was still healthy and therefore viable or whether it had already rotted on the inside and was therefore dangerous.

But the Tscherper knife was also used in everyday life, such as cutting bread and sausages at the Tcherper meal, which was still taking place.

With a blade thickness of 4-4.5mm and a blade length of 120mm, the Tscherper was a powerful all-purpose knife. The blades are hand-forged for tough everyday use.

Under the expert guidance of master blacksmiths Rüdiger Willecke and Ralf Siegemund, you can forge your own Tscherper knife in a suitable atmosphere at the Rammelsberg World Heritage Site during a two-day workshop. Learn what hardening and tempering the blade is all about and what happens when the handle is made for a wedding.

"The money was on the shelf" - guided tours through the former central warehouse of the Rammelsberg ore mine

Until the late 1980s, central magazines were not uncommon for companies. Only the strategy of uninterrupted supply chains and fast delivery has made these facilities obsolete.

The central magazine building from the 1930s is still preserved at the Rammelsberg World Heritage Site. During the tour, the material management of the ore mine is explained and an original storage room of the magazine, with old shelves in which countless spare parts are stored, is visited.

Starting point: Museum box office, 11 a.m
Price: €18 Tickets at
Dates: January 27th / February 10th
