The Virtual Corkscrew Museum


Heinz Hohn is a corkscrew collector in Germany. He is an expert in corkscrews from the East German firm "Dreko" and has the most complete collection of their products. In his book, Dreko Drehteile und Korkenzieher, Heinz presents a chronicle of the firm from it's 1958 combination of three firms until its breakup in 1992. Most of his collection is detailed with color photographs.

When the International Correspondence of Corkscrew Addicts held its 2000 meeting in Germany, Heinz set up a fantastic display of Dreko corkscrews at the Hotel Wartburg in Eisenach.
