It was a warm September day when we drove through the Harz mountains and accidentally stumbled across Pullman City. Welcomed by a huge wooden sign above the road, we didn’t know what to expect at first. We parked our car and walked towards the main entrance. Suddenly some elder people dressed as citizens, cowboys and native people appeared out of nowhere. Certainly it felt like we’re time traveling and just popped up in some 1880s western city.

A truly western experience in central Germany

And it was exactly like that. After going past the entrance you arrive on the main street. The western vibe can be felt on every corner. Some country music is playing in one of the saloons and people act like in some good western movie. There’s countless of typical buildings from that time period like a sheriff’s office, a prison, a barber’s shop, a steakhouse and many different shops with handmade items.

Attractions for everyone

In addition to all the cultural experiences you can engage with, there’s tons of other attractions for every age group. As a result you should keep an eye on the event calendar as you might aim for some interesting workshops, concerts or US car meetings. 

Furthermore interested visitors can marvel at the many different aspects of American settlement history. The story of the white is being told the Old Western Museum, while numerous exhibits display an insight into Indian culture and history. Those who want to participate actively, can among other things, try gold panning under the guidance of the Klondike Goldwash camp.
