Gerbereischuppen

Simmern · Hunsrück

The tannery has been very important in Simmern and the vicinity since the Middle Ages. The cortex came from the surroundings and the tanneries were located in Simmern.
By an electoral decree the manufactories were moved to today’s Gerbereistraße. A city view of 1900 shows this situation. This handicraft tradition ended in the 1930’s in Simmern.
