Winningen - from the history of a traditional wine village Winegrowing has a centuries-old tradition in Winningen. During excavations around the church, tools were found which indicate that the village was settled more than 3000 years ago. The excavation of a Roman villa on the Winningen hill is open to the public. In the fields in the (today's industrial area) a hand axe was found, which is about 800,000 years old.
The viticulture in Winningen: Moselle viticulture lives from a two thousand year old tradition. Extensive finds of wine-growing tools and wine vessels from the Roman period as well as the oldest known documentary mention of Winningen from the year 871, which refers to the donation of vineyards, are evidence of this in our village. Dive into the world of the winegrower and see the most important facts about winegrowing in former times.
AUGUST HORCH - a son of our village August Horch has been an honorary citizen of Winningen since 1949. "The exhibition is located in the classroom where AUGUST HORCH was taught". A section in the museum gives insight into the life and work of the famous car pioneer.
