Description
Fark Mechanical Workshop in Staufen - Fark’sche Werkstatt in Staufen
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to the Industrial Age! The Fark Mechanical Workshop in Staufen, a small town in Southern Baden, is a living museum: It’s a place where history left its mark in every inch of wood and metal. Founded by Emil Fark in 1892, the workshop produced wine presses in its early years. Later, the business turned to agricultural machines. The workshop received its power from a waterwheel, the machines were driven by so-called transmissions. In 1989, the business was closed and the property transferred to the Staufener Stadtbildverein, a local society with the aim to preserve and rebuild historical objects. Manfred Kiefer, a retired toolmaker, restored the machines for the society and breathed new life into the building. Today, it’s an industrial monument which can be visited. Enjoy the tour!

Willkommen im Industriezeitalter! Die Fark’sche Werkstatt im südbadischen Staufen ist ein lebendiges Museum: Hier können Besucher den Geist der Vergangenheit atmen. Gegründet wurde die Metallwerkstatt im Jahr 1892 von Emil Fark, der dort zunächst Weinpressen, später dann Landmaschinen herstellte. Die Energie für die Fertigung wurde über ein Wasserrad gewonnen, das die Maschinen über Transmissionen antrieb. 1989 wurde der Betrieb eingestellt und das Gebäude an den Staufener Stadtbildverein übertragen. Für den Verein restaurierte Manfred Kiefer vor einigen Jahren die Maschinen und hauchte der Werkstatt neues Leben ein. Heute ist es ein Industriedenkmal, das im Rahmen von Führungen besichtigt werden kann. Genieße den Rundgang!

Absolutely gorgeous capture - nice work!

(Looks great on a GTX 980Ti, and believe it or not runs at 90fps on a 780Ti. Really blurry and speckly on the latter, though...)
