The collection with heart exhibits old tractors and historical agricultural equipment. Don’t miss the historical Hartmann steam engine in action, still operational today.
The Bulldog-Freunde Erzgebirge association keeps the farming tradition of the Erzgebirge alive here in the museum, which covers approx. 600 m2. Members collect old tractors, threshing machines, ploughs, potato harvesters, combine harvesters, etc., and painstakingly restore them. In addition to numerous pieces of restored agricultural machinery and small farm equipment, a 1911 Lanz steam locomotive is one of the rarities.

The goal of association members is to awaken, promote and disseminate the old rural customs of the Erzgebirge. They also endeavour to keep alive long-forgotten farming processes, such as sheaf-binding and sheaf puppet-making, and to hand them down to the next generation.

Every autumn, the Friends host a meet to display the approximately 300 tractors, crawlers, trucks and other historical agricultural equipment to the public. The event is accompanied by a swapmeet for spare parts, as well as entertaining music, food and drink, and a diverse programme for children.
