Bärnau - the "Button Town"
The headquarters of the Dill button factory is the German town Bärnau in Bavaria.(www.baernau.de) The town lies between Nuernberg and Prague, close to the famous spa town Marienbad in Czech Republic.
Buttons have been manufactured here for more than 100 years and the town in the heart of Europe became the button center of the world. The outcome of this historical development is the fact that today the town of Bärnau has a museum which is globally unique – the German Button Museum. Here visitors can find out about the history of button production in Bärnau through text and images, as well as exhibition items - some of which are of historical value.
