This is a small city museum. By using the quest's card, we paid only 4 Euros for entrance. The part we enjoyed most is the exhibition of the ancient instruments and some of the video showing the making of one of the instruments. All the...More

This has the excellent Dance Macabre and a superb collection of violins (sic) are the most interesting thing here. It's only €6 Per adult so it's quite cheap by German standards. We liked it and spend about an hour wandering around..

This was a real surprise, especially the variety of exhibits inside. The stringed instruments wery cool, but many of the displays also gave great insight into the history of the area. Very well worth a stop.
