The Lage Brickworks
From clay to brick
The Lage brickworks are surrounded by meadows and fields, and its bright red rooftops can be seen from far and wide. For over 70 years smoke rose from the high chimney and millions of bricks were produced in the former family business in Lippe. The original facilities have been completely preserved. This is an ideal opportunity for you to immerse yourself in a world of hard work, visit the entrepreneur Gustav Beermann in his villa, get to know a working class family in their simple cottage, stroll through their vegetable garden, and make your own bricks by treading clay. The production days in the mechanised brickworks and the firing ceremony are highlights in the annual calendar of the industrial museum.
