Walking-stick Workshop
Walking-stick Workshop
The walking stick workshop invites to enjoy the stick making process which boasts more than 200 years of history. The walking sticks are the most recognizable and oldest symbol of Sigulda, developed along with the old valley promenade trails made by prince Kropotkins, thus becoming a great companion for a walker.

Making walking sticks in Sigulda vicinity has more than 200 years old history. Already in the 19th century, the guidebooks say that "a walking stick can be bought from a boy for a walk along Sigulda's ravines." Initially, the sticks were made quite simple - one end of a straight stick of hazelnut tree or buckthorn was barked and curved - for handle. The rest of the stick was left unbarked.
 
At the beginning of the 20th century, when Sigulda evolved into a boarding house and summerhouse centre and walks along the so-called Alpine trails built by the owner of Sigulda manor prince Kropotkins, the production and sale of walking sticks became an important source of profit for local farmers.  
 
 
Offers for groups and individual visitors:  to buy walking sticks of various size as well as order sticks with specially burned in names.
