Papirmuseet Bikuben, Silkeborg
"Papirmuseet Bikuben" is a working museum established in the original production facilities for handmade paper in the former Silkeborg Papirfabrik A/S which closed down in 2000 after more than 150 years of paper making.
Members of the Guild of Danish Papermakers (Danmarks Papirmagerlaug) are keeping the old traditions and crafts alive in exactly the very place where handmade paper was once produced, and visitors are also invited to try their luck at the vat.
We take great pride in talking to our guests and explaining about the process of making paper from rags which was the most common raw material for a very long time, and do our best to make it worth while a visit to the museum.
We also produce handmade paper in smaller lots with or without watermarks and special orders are welcome. Among others we have made paper for Jyske Bank and also for His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik, but our prices are at a level, where everybody can enjoy the pleasure of having his or her own handmade paper for invitations etc.
English and German is spoken so don't hesitate writing to us or pay us a visit.
