‪Unique Tour‬
‪فبراير 2020‬
‪كنا نبحث عن جولات فريدة من نوعها أثناء وجوده في العاصمة في نهاية الأسبوع الماضي ولحسن الحظ وجدنا هذا واحد. حصلنا على التذاكر في وقت مبكر ، وهناك شيء واحد نلاحظه هو التبرع / الشخص المقترح بمبلغ 10 دولارات. شخصيا ، نظرًا لأنه "اقترح" ، لم نتبرع عندما حجزنا في البداية. منذ أن تم اقتراحه ، أردت أن أقوم بالتبرع بعد الجولة - بناءً على التجربة. أنت لا تحصل على هذه الفخامة تمامًا لأنهم ينادونك في بداية الجولة و "يشجعون / يحثونك" على التبرع على الفور. عندما تصل إلى المنزل لأول مرة - تنتظر في الخارج للجولة التالية. لا يوجد انتظار في الداخل. غاب عن الجولة الرابعة 11: 30 صباحًا بخمس دقائق ولم يتمكن من الانضمام "متأخرًا". كان هناك مرشد سياحي واحد فقط وتبدأ الجولة في الجزء الخلفي من المنزل - لذلك إذا كنت تنتظر في المقدمة ، فلن ترى لك أبدًا. لذلك - كن في الوقت المحدد! حتى بعد كل ذلك - لقد استمتعت حقا بهذه الجولة. انتهى الأمر بأكثر من ساعة وسترى معظم المنزل. على الرغم من أن المفروشات من ذلك الوقت ، فقد اعتقدت أنه تم الحفاظ عليها جيدًا ، وكان دليلنا دقيقًا جدًا في أوصافها. أنصح الجولة للآخرين.‬

‪We were looking for unique tours while in DC last weekend and fortunately found this one. We got tickets ahead of time and one thing to note is the $10 suggested donation / person. Personally, seeing as it was "suggested", we didn't donate when we initially booked. Since it was suggested, I wanted to do the donation after the tour - based on the experience. You don't quite get that luxury b/c they call you out at the beginning of the tour and "encourage/urge" you to donate right away.

When you first get to the house - you wait outside for the next tour. There is no waiting inside. A foursome missed the 11:30 am tour by five minutes and could not join "late". There was only 1 tour guide and she starts the tour in the back of the house - so if you're waiting in the front, she'll never see you. So - be on time!

Even after all that - I really enjoyed the tour. It ended up being over an hour and you really got to see most of the house. Even though the furnishings are from that time, I thought it was preserved very well, and our guide was very thorough in her descriptions.

I would recommend the tour to others.‬

‪It was a very memorable tour. The guides were very knowledgeable, providing many interesting background stories and pleasant. There were many photo opportunities. It is a multi-level Victorian home but there is an elevator available, if needed.‬

‪We saw this on a you tube channel called DC trip hacks. The mansion was beautiful the tour was self guided. I just wish more of the house wasn't off limits. I did find the Christmas market a let down. I'm used to a true German Christmas markets ornaments, gingerbread hearts, wurst strudel etc. But it was more of a local artisan market, it was very small in my opinion. I understand support small businesses, but if you are going to advertise a German Christmas market, have some German related items to sell. But I enjoyed the history of the house more and I bought a Christmas ornament and some maple syrup. I would love to see it in the daylight next time. I visit DC .People complain about the entry fee but you have to realize the fee goes to the mansion preservation and upkeep. It's not free like a Smithsonian museum‬

‪December offers a self-guided tour of the house and a small-scale German market on the house grounds. There was a small selection of vendors, good holiday gifts, followed by a self-guided tour of the house. I would recommend touring this house with a guide. The woodworking is incredible and the life style guided tour would offer a better chance not appreciate this unique home. There did not seem to be a gift shop which I would have appreciated for a small moment.‬

‪Venu d’Allemagne puis d’Autriche pour s’établir à Baltimore dans une entreprise de brasserie qu’il fit prospérer, Christian Heurich (à la prononciation américanisée en « Hi-rick ») a fait construire cette demeure à Washington DC pour y installer sa famille. Malheureusement veuf 2 fois sans descendance, il eut enfin 4 enfants (dont un bébé décédé à quelques mois) de sa 3ème épouse... nièce de la première et portant le même prénom.
La maison comporte des meubles de goût étonnant (des fauteuils à bascule de style Louis XV, des chaises sur roulettes de style rococco...), et des meubles plutôt sombres très sculptés. Traumatisé par des incendies survenus dans ses brasseries, Heurich a favorisé l’acier et le fer forgé pour la construction et l’aménagement de sa maison, dont les cheminées n’étaient que décoratives. Un système précurseur d’aspiration centralisée (vacuum) a même été installé.
Les visites sont organisées 3 jours par semaine à raison de 3 par jour à heure fixe, avec une réservation préalable conseillée sur internet (donation de 10$ suggérée). L’entrée se fait par un ascenseur côté rue et la visite comprend le rez-de-chaussée, le 1er étage ainsi que le sous-sol (où se découvre une salle à manger informelle de type taverne allemande avec des inscriptions en langue germanique peintes sur les murs). La demeure comporte 4 niveaux climatisés et une véranda donnant sur un petit jardin et une annexe où est présentée une exposition temporaire sur les bières Heurich. Une visite quasi privée qui vaut le déplacement. ‬

‪The photos on this site do not do it justice! Beautiful mansion built in 1894 will all the latest technology at that time. This was an easy walk from the Dupont Circle Metro South exit. They do have an elevator if someone is in a wheel chair. It is only open for tours on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays for 3 one hour tours. It is worth the visit. One hour tour only costs $ 10. Go on a regular tour and you will get to see more of the house. The docent was very friendly and knowledgeable. Beautiful on the inside, nice garden in the back. One can pay to have a wedding or event there. It would be a beautiful place to do so.‬

‪First of all, this is the house of one of Washington DC's first millionaires...back in the late 1800s! It's now a Not-For-Profit Foundation/Museum carrying on the family's history...as well as our history as Americans.

Christian Heurich was an immigrant in 1866 (he waited to enter the US until after our Civil War was over...) from what is now Austria (back then, it was part of the Austrio-Hungarian Empire...)

I will let the wonderful docents tell you the details, but it's a fabulous visit to a place that could have been visited by the Rockefellers, the Fricks, the Carnegies, the Forbes...you get my drift.

Enjoy!‬

‪One of the best preserved Victorian mansions in the USA, definitely worth a visit if you want to see what state of the art living in 1894 looked like. Mansion of the DC brewing family, the Heurich's, it has been largely preserved just as it was in the late 1800's as the family didn't change much while they lived there. Sign up online for one of their tours that only take an hour or two. Out back in the carriage house is an exhibit on the Heurich Brewing Company that used to be where the Kennedy Center is now. Cool little site not too many folks know about and well worth the visit!‬

‪We discovered/ visited Heurich House a few weeks ago while walking in the DuPonr Circle area. It had line of 10-15 people because there was a Kristkindl (Christmas) Market going on. We bought the $15 tickets which gave us access to the market and the museum tour. It was nice, but didn’t think the price was justified. The Kristkindl market had 30-40 stalls. Only 3 or 4 of them had food with lines. Rest were just mostly selling locally made stuff but somehow they convinced somebody to let them open a stall in a German Christmas market?!. The museum tour was nice but limited to the 1st & 2nd levels - they didn’t allow us to go to the basement which had the brew house or the upper levels. Not worth $15/person. ‬

‪Don’t miss this museum and its astounding explosion of 19th-century decorative excess. I’m definitely putting it on my list of wonderful, unexpected places to show visitors from out of town.

I walked past the unusual, big building for years without making the time to go in—until a few days ago.

This Victorian-era “brewmaster’s castle” is so chock-a-block full of fancy details that I couldn’t stop taking photos.

It was the first fireproof residence in Washington, DC. And the first with electricity. Today it’s one the few historical houses in the city that still has most of its original furniture.

The backstories of the furnishings are fascinating.

Consider the enormous double roll-top oak desk with mahogany inlays in the library. It was commissioned for President Grant and made in Bozeman, Montana, in 1879. For some reason, though, it ended up in government storage. Christian Heurich bought it at a government auction—but he never used it. It was so fabulous he didn’t want to scratch it! That means what you see in the museum is in perfect condition.

Room after room of this old home is filled with such surprises, and arranged so attractively with the comforts and doodads of daily life, that you may just want to move in.

The current museum is the home that beer built, especially a variety called Senate Beer. A private collection, on loan, of Heurich Brewery memorabilia is now also on exhibit—which you see in the carriage house after touring the main building.

Heurich’s brewery survived Prohibition by selling ice, but it closed in 1956.

Our docent told us that the modern company DC Brau has done some reverse engineering to recreate Heurich’s lager beer, which it now brews occasionally. She loves it and buys it by the case when she can find it. That’s on my list now too.

Tips: Tour groups are small, so reserve your space ahead of time at the museum’s website.

A docent will let you in just before your tour begins, so prepare to stand outside and wait until that happens.

A $10 donation is requested.

If you’re from out of town: This museum is near the Dupont Circle stop on the DC Metro’s red line. Leave the station from the southern exit, and take the stretch of New Hampshire Avenue that runs off the traffic circle to the southwest. The walk to the museum should take about five minutes.‬
