Built in 1863, the “Rüdy Küche” (Ruedy Kitchen) is the only intact communal-era kitchen remaining in the Amanas. The kitchen is preserved as it appeared in 1932 when it served community members for the last time. Visitors can see the kitchen with the large brick hearth, the dry sink with its wooden tubs, and the original implements used to prepare meals. In the dining room, tables are set for a communal meal. A guide explains the daily routine of the kitchen workers.
The Cooper Shop was built c. 1863. On exhibit are tools and products of the cooper’s (barrel makers) trade.
