The 1st Smoking Man Museum

Around 2,000 figures to admire at over 200 m2 in the &quotOld Dye-Works&quot. Each of the unique items, almost all of which are behind glass, is between 5 and 80 centimetres tall. The smoking men are mainly turned in wood, either in the classic style as smoking Turks, or night watchmen, or policemen or numerous other jobs. The oldest collector's item is from around 1930. Visitors can learn about the diversity and the form of the smoking man or &quotRaachermannl&quot. The old dye-works, which was renovated in 2011, enjoys a central location in Cranzahl.
