Industrial history at your fingertips
TextilWerk Bocholt

Textile plant Bocholt

More than 20,000 spindles once turned in the Herding spinning mill in Bocholt. Today, the imposing brick building with its four storeys is a forum for textile culture. In the excitingly restored industrial monument, the past and present of textiles come alive. Interesting special exhibitions inform about modern and historical technology, show fashion design and international textile art. Event rooms and the glass roof café offer space for a wide variety of events - from concerts to cabaret to crime night.

Would you like to take a look around the Spinnerei before your visit to the Textilwerk? Thanks to a virtual 360-degree tour, it's now very easy to do so. Click on the link and wander through the floors and rooms of the building. Look out for the buttons with the plus sign! Because in some places there is exciting information hidden about the exhibits in the Spinnerei.

Astonishment in the weaving mill

The weaving mill joins the TextilWerk in the immediate vicinity as another site. The smell of oil and work brings the past back to life. The looms rattle so loudly that visitors involuntarily cover their ears. What you experience today during a visit was everyday life for thousands of men and women 100 years ago. The exhibitions show you how the beat of the machines dictated their work. The heart of the museum factory is the large weaving hall. More than 30 historic machines are set in motion under the shed roofs by transmission belts and long drive shafts. The staff of the Industrial Museum produce fabrics for towels and tablecloths from the historical collection here every day.
Away from the noisy factory, you will get to know the meagre everyday life of the families in a completely furnished workers' house with a cultivated garden.
