My research took me to WeiBenfels, a former industrial boom town for shoe manufacturing.  Now much like apparel related towns in the North East, their are many empty buildings, awaiting a new life.

However, I was impressed with the Shoe Museum, dedicated to the towns history of shoe production, and a great collection of shoes from around the world!
