But where does this strange green rock come from and what role does it play for the city of Soest?
The Green Sandstone Museum provides interested guests with comprehensive answers to these questions and more. The half-timbered barn, which has been lovingly restored with the help of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, among others, houses a stone collection as well as stone fragments of buildings from the Soest district that no longer exist. Descriptive information boards guide visitors through the museum and provide interesting facts about Soest's typical building stone.
