The Ludwig-Erhard-Center in Fürth
The LEZ Ludwig Erhard Centre in Fürth's town hall.
It's fun to expand your knowledge, especially in such a well-designed museum as the LEZ in Fürth's town hall.
In summer I like to do sports and be outdoors, but while it's still cold and uncomfortable, I like to go to museums and exhibitions.
One museum visit that particularly excited me, but also moved me, has to do with German history of the last century: Ludwig Erhard, the path to freedom, the social market economy, prosperity for all.
The museum consists of Ludwig Erhard's birthplace, which is a listed building, and a striking new building at the back of Fürth's town hall, which blends amazingly well into the renovated Wilhelminian style surroundings.
The museum is a documentation, exhibition, research and meeting centre on Ludwig Erhard and his concept of the social market economy, which was unique in Germany.
A permanent exhibition with numerous exhibits and multimedia stations invites visitors to linger and immerse themselves in German history of the last century and vividly explains how the market economy worked.
A visit is a must for anyone interested in economics.
The rooms of the former Erhard family tool shed on the ground floor of the house are now home to the "Luise" day café with its 1950s and 1960s ambience, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee with delicious cake after your visit.
