About Vulcano Schinkenwelt
Vulcano Ursprung will take you to the origin of taste and show you the world of smoked ham as a sensory realm - with information and experiences embedded within a unique ambience filled with enjoyment. On three stories and across 1.000m², visitors to the world of the finest smoked hams will be captivated as they learn everything there is to know about the secrets behind these nobel delicacies, secrets they can learn first-hand on tours through discrete areas of production, processing, and maturing techniques: From the large smoked ham made of stainless steel at the entrance to the welcoming lobby, the arcadet sidewalk, the pig stalls, and the regional assortment of delicacies to the one-of-a-kind room designed to stimulate your senses with creative exhibits and swinging smoked hams. The adjacent smoked ham bar, the specialities store, and arched cellar area ensure that everything here will appeal to your palate. As a particularly interesting "extra" visitors will be greeted right at the beginning by Vulcana, the symbol of Vulcano, designed and painted by Dominika Kalcher, and whose story can be heard in a film narration by Folke Tegetthoff. The sensory nature of the information will surprise your eyes, ears, nose, and will certainly serve to prepare you for the right taste. Enjoy the origin.
