The Roscheider Hof Open Air Museum is the open air museum and Folklore Museum of the Greater SaarLorLux Region. The museum is situated in Konz, Germany, on the Saar and Mosel rivers, 8 km west from Trier and 30 km east from Luxembourg. It is a museum for rural cultural history in north-west Rhineland Palatinate and the German-Luxembourg-Lorraine border region. As opposed to many other open air museums, the Roscheider Hof museum in Konz is not a public or community institution. The sponsoring organisation for the museum since its foundation has been the registered, non profit association founded in 1973, "Volkskunde- und Freilichtmuseum Roscheider Hof, Konz e.V." with over 1000 members in 2007. The museum is financed by membership fees, entrance charges, subsidies and donations. Founder of the supporting association was Prof. Rolf Robischon.

History of the Roscheider Hof

Farmers' and craftsmen's day

The "Roscheider Hof" estate is used today as exhibition rooms. It consists of several buildings: the core of the place is formed by the buildings around a rectangular courtyard. The Roscheider Hof was first mentioned in a record dating from [1330]]. During the 1978 renovations a few parts of the building came to light which could be dated to the early 16th century. For instance there is a small walled window with late Gothic splays. Until the French revolution in 1794 (when the revolutionary troops conquered the Trier region) it was an agricultural estate owned by the St. Matthias (St. Matthew) Benedictine monastery, which still exists today. As part of the secularisation of these years the estate was auctioned off to the credit of the French state in 1805 and acquired by Nicholas Valdenaire, who had come to the nearby town of Saarburg as a French soldier in 1801 and married there. Nicholas Valdenaire extended the estate and enlarged the Roscheider Hof buildings with extensive renovations. He and his son Victor played a prominent role in the 1848 revolution: they were deputies in the provincial parliament, in the state parliament, in the Prussian national assembly in Berlin and in the first German parliament in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt - and were even imprisoned several times for such activities.
