Hahndorf Handcrafted History

Imagine life as an early 1840 Prussian settler at the Schmidt-Rodert hof, the only surviving farmyard complex in the Hahndorf main street.

See how the widow Schmidt and her family lived and built a home for herself and her descendants on this heritage site.
Explore the wooden barn, pigsty and smoke house, stone kitchen and corbelled bake oven.

Street Theatre & Story Telling. Madryn Silverlake, in the guise of her great great grandmother Eleonore Pfeiffer, will delight you with her stories of growing up as a young Lutheran emigrant in 19th century Hahndorf, walking to Adelaide with her baskets laden with produce for sale, marriage and other family adventures.

This wonderful property is privately owned and is rarely open to the public.
