They all have their own special stories to tell that have made them so interesting over the course of time.

Museum Menno-Kate in Bad Oldesloe

The cottage “Menno-Kate” - as small as it may seem - is a contemporary witness of spiritual development. The thatched, whitewashed cottage situated just at the edge of Bad Oldesloe originates from the 16th century. Among other things, it served as a print house in which the works by Menno Simons, who gave the Anabaptist movement Mennonites its name, were printed. Today the Menno-Kate houses a museum in commemoration of Simons. The old lime tree in front of the cottage is said to have been planted by Menno Simons himself. Both the cottage and the tree are protected. The grounds around the cottage are freely accessible for the public all year round. The museum can be viewed by appointment.
