Candle Workshop

Candle drawing was already a common practice in Roman times. Even today this is a beloved and widely disseminated hobby. You don’t need any special talent, just a touch of creativity and patience.

In Heike’s Candle Workshop, you can purchase candles and decorative materials and can draw candles yourself. For group registration or individual appointments, contact:

Huss - Räucherkerzenherstellung

Aromatic candles such as the fine-smelling spheres from the Erzgebirge are very popular around Christmas time. In Neudorf, aromatic candles made of natural raw materials were already being manufactured in the 1930s based on old family recipes. Along with the manufacture of aromatic candles, various aromatic candle ovens and aromatic vessels made of tin are made in this area.

In 2007, a demonstrator workshop was opened in the centre of Neudorf. There you can experience aromatic candle making yourself. Along with the manufacture of aromatic candles, you can take a walk through the history and tradition of the “Karzl” – manufacture in the Erzgebirge.

Crottendorfer Räucherkerzen

In the lovingly furnished sales exhibition, Räucherkerzenland [name of the business] offers tours where you can learn the history of aromatic incense and the company’s rich traditions. View all of the production machinery and learn about the raw materials used in aromatic candles.

Make aromatic candles yourself, just like they did 75 years ago. Knead the dough, create an aromatic and shape the aromatic candles by hand just like the company’s founder, Freya Graupner, did in 1936 in her small kitchen. Test the success of your creative work at home and bring a piece of Ergebirge tradition home with you. This is an unforgettable experience for young and old alike! Appointments available on request.
