1. Deutsche Märchen- und Wesersagenmuseum

Show sight on map

The German Fairy Tale and Weser Legend Museum is located in the Villa Paul Baehr, a magnificent Art Nouveau villa, at the spa gardens of Bad Oeynhausen. Originating from the private foundation of the folklorist and writer Karl Paetow, who died in 1992, the museum offers insights into the broad field of old folk tales and deals primarily with the pictorial implementation of fairy tale and legend motifs. It shows illustrations to the well-known children's and household fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, who have found many of their fairy tale material in the Weser Uplands, as well as other fairy tale collectors and storytellers as well as artistic pictorial implementations of current artists that go far beyond book illustration.

2. Hofwassermühle Siekertal 1772

Show sight on map

The Museumshof Bad Oeynhausen was opened in 1969 as the local history museum of the East Westphalian spa town. Models for the museum were the open-air museum Bad Zwischenahn, the farmhouse museum Bielefeld and the then emerging museum courtyard Rahden. Originally, only a single building, the main house, which was transferred there in 1965, was intended. The expansion into a farm complex was triggered in 1974 by the donation of a hireling house. By 1993, five buildings had been built on the 2,800 m² site. In addition, there was a farm watermill with two mill ponds on the nearby Osterbach of the Siekertal.

3. historischer Ladekran

Show sight on map

A derrick is a lifting device composed at minimum of one guyed mast, as in a gin pole, which may be articulated over a load by adjusting its guys. Most derricks have at least two components, either a guyed mast or self-supporting tower, and a boom hinged at its base to provide articulation, as in a stiffleg derrick. The most basic type of derrick is controlled by three or four lines connected to the top of the mast, which allow it both to move laterally and cant up and down. To lift a load, a separate line runs up and over the mast with a hook on its free end, as with a crane.
