Boot Museum and Wagler Gallery

Short facts

In the former home of the regionally famous painter Karl Wagler you can marvel at the world's largest cuff boot.

The traditions of craftsmanship and, in particular, of shoe-making have enjoyed great significance in the town of Leisnig for hundreds of years. In recognition of this tradition, the two master shoemakers Rolf Neidhardt and Gerhard Berthold made the world's largest leather boot in 1996, the so-called "Leisnig Giant Boot". They commemorated the shoemaker's guild in Leisnig with this masterpiece of craftsmanship. The boot, standing at almost 5 meters high, is housed in Burglehn No. 9.

Since the house was home to the well-known painter Karl Wagler, the entire Wagler Foundation was moved from the neighbouring Mildenstein Castle to his home.
