The bog – its mysteries, people and machines.
At Stenvad bog cultivation centre (Stenvad Mosebrugscenter) you sense the bog’s mystery, and the memories of working in the summer securing warmth inside for the winter can be relived. You will find models of various types of bog and both original and reconstructed implements and machinery for peat-digging next to ingenious tools like the million spade and the blacksmith’s rail moped.
Local weavers have portrayed the area’s and the peat bog’s history on a tapestry that is 7 m2 in total.
The exhibition also houses a model of the living-quarters that the peat cutters had out in the bog. During the high season a kneading facility is kneading peat soil in the „children’s bog“.
