Eisenhütte Augustfehn - favorite places with listening station
The ironworks tower is THE landmark of Augustfehn! A foundry was built here in the middle of the 19th century and operated until 1932. This ironworks company ensured the economic upswing of the young Fehnsiedlung: The population grew rapidly, especially due to the arrival of workers. Various iron products were manufactured here, including numerous cast goods such as stoves, windows, mirrors and other everyday objects of modern society at the end of the 19th century. Overall, the ironworks industry promoted the region sustainably. From the former ironworks site, the boiler house with water tower, two shed roof halls and parts of the wall are still preserved today. The three-storey water tower has an unusual cube top with a tent roof. He is thus visible from afar and has become a symbol for Augustfehn. Leaning to the south of the tower is the boiler house, where the steam boiler with its fireplace used to stand, which powered the machines with its steam. In 2003 the municipality of Apen bought the ironworks site from the Federal Property Office. In 2010 the boiler house and water tower became the property of Anke and Dieter Börjes, who had the buildings back and converted into the EISENHÜTTE gastronomy with a cultural program. Not least because of this, the ironworks is a favorite place for many Aper citizens. Here you can enjoy nice hours with other people, good food and music.
