Kleppermuseum (Klepper folding kayak museum)
The Kleppermuseum focuses on the folding kayak patented by the Klepper family, which became famous worldwide due to its victorious participation in the 1936 Olympics and the Atlantic crossing in 1956. The opening of the museum therefore not only attracted “Klepper fans” from Germany but also welcomed visitors from Canada, France, Australia and the USA. As Ursula Isbruch, spokeswoman of the museum board, explains, the Kleppermuseum is intended to be a place for folding kayak fans and canoeists to come together and dream.
