» Roth

Roth Roth is a diverse town. The picturesque old town around the snug market place invites you to stroll and the many sided sport, leisure and cultural attractions have a surprise in store time and again.

The jewel and landmark of Roth is the Schloss Ratibor: The ensemble with its courtyard and adjoining garden form an oasis of stillness in the middle of the town. Likewise it also forms the backdrop for a number of open air events, for example the popular castle courtyard plays or various concerts.

Three museums of the town present the history and traditions of Roth. The Museum Schloss Ratibor with the “Prunksaal” (great hall) as outstanding feature is certainly worth a visit. In the Fabrikmuseum (Factory Museum) the “Leonischen Industry”, present in Roth since the 17th century is the central theme. The process of the wire from its raw form to finished “Leonishen” products is vividly shown on impressive working machinery from former times. In the Historical Iron Hammer museum working blacksmiths bring the smithy back to life. Additionally various articles of daily use in agriculture and handwork are on display.
