The Bocholt Textile factory
Fashion, design and technology
The Bocholt Textile factory, featuring a weaving mill and a spinning mill, is located in the heart of a new cultural quarter between the city centre and Lake Aa. The two sites are connected by a bridge over the river Aa. Visitors to the impressive rooms in the old Herding spinning mill can gain exciting insights into past and present technology, as well as learning more about the history of fashion and contemporary design. There are daily demonstrations on the vintage looms in the weaving mill, and you can also visit a fully furnished working-class dwelling with a flourishing garden.
