Porcelain history

Porcelain Manufactory Karlheinz Knopf decorates figurines, clocks,
candle holders and other decorative articles with gold and flower patterns.
Porcelain Factory Ludwigsstadt GmbH, Wiefel & Co was founded
in 1907, but exists no longer.


Oh, what a beautiful couple are porcelain and chocolate! Not one, but
two confectioneries have their home in Ludwigsstadt: The transparent manufactory, its sales and the sweet treats from Confiserie Burg Lauenstein are waiting for you at the Fischbachsmühle. Another sweet address is the Frankenwald Confiserie with its café. Enjoy the production, enjoy the fresh chocolate or try one of the legendary XXL cream puffs. The town’s symbol is the medieval fortress Lauenstein situated on a hill, where you can find a collection of historic keys, among other things. Say hello to the White Lady who, according to a legend, haunts the site.
