Jan Torf

The life of
the moor peasants

On the tracks of Jan Torf

 
There are many stories about “Jan Torf” in Teufelsmoor. And he did not exist just once – his name stands for all the farmers who brought peat from Teufelsmoor – as fuel – on their ships to Bremen.

Learn more about the region, where the grandchildren and great grandchildren of Jan Torf are living today. Be mesmerized by the unique charm of our landscape and start understanding, why a peaceful coexistence and cooperation of peat farmers and artists was possible in Worpswede about one hundred years ago.

Hereby you will know more about the traditional cuisine in historical and cozy buildings as well as our distinctive landscape.

Today, “Jan Torf” also stands for an unmistakable herb-flavoured liqueur from the region – as sympathetic as the people who live here and as mysterious as the moor landscape, from where it comes.

Enjoy the 3 unforgettable days on the tracks of “Jan Torf”.
