The unique ensemble consisting of factory buildings, grand houses and a landscaped park, created by Lothar von Faber and Alexander Count Faber-Castell, is now accessible to the public as the “Faber-Castell Experience”. Its special fascination lies in the juxtaposition of the past and future of an internationally active family firm that is now, after more than 250 years, in the hands of the family. We wish you an enjoyable and memorable time at Faber-Castell in Stein.
