What you will be doing

Let us tell you a story: Imagine that once upon a time a giant built a huge wall, right here. He wanted to use the wall to storm the heavens. But then he was stopped by the god of thunder, who put a mountain made of ore, the Erzberg, right in front of the giant’s nose.

This was bad luck for the giant, but very good luck for the people here, because iron is made from ore, so since then they have had iron. And also: what is that ostrich doing in the city’s coat of arms?

This workshop works well in combination with a visit to the Erzberg Adventure in Eisenerz.
