Druckladen – Gutenburg Museum information
In the Gutenberg museum's Druckladen , across tiny Seilergasse, you can try out Gutenberg's technology yourself - on the condition that you're at least five years old. You'll be issued with a smock (the unique odour of printers' ink may, for many, conjure up the nobility of making the written word available to the masses, but the gloop is hell to get out of fabric) and instructed in the art of hand-setting type - backwards, of course.
