Richtersche Villa

Looking like a fairy-tale castle, the huge mansion on Schwarzburger Chaussee was named after the factory owner Friedrich Adolf Richter. By founding a pharmaceutical manufactory that also produced sweets, jukeboxes and toys, Richter established an important branch of industry in Rudolstadt in the 19th century. The building blocks, sold under the trade mark "Anchor" in many countries all over the world, have been the most famous products of the manufactory. Today they experience their revival by the company Ankerstein GmbH in Rudolstadt.
