The replica of the racing kiln is located on the site where the well-known local historian Otto Krasa, together with H. Rohrbach, uncovered a very well-preserved racing kiln during excavation work in the 1930s.

The kiln vividly demonstrates how advanced the Celts were back then.

Large-scale excavations were carried out in the area, which were considered exemplary throughout Central Europe at the time. These excavations brought to light numerous smelting furnaces and forges.

The best-preserved original find was painstakingly recovered and can still be seen today in the Siegerland Museum in the Upper Castle, in the economic history section of the exhibition.
