  •  Displays of torture tools for speaking of exhibits in castles, gorgeous ornaments and furniture, or swords, and other weapons is common, but here is not seen so much in the other criminals. Kamen Rider get humiliated and mentally and physically hurt chairs one corner, I was.

  • If one has mastered the climb to the Hohensalzburg Fortress, you should take out also this museum. Here, the history of the castle is documented well explained. Still, many are to admire well-preserved exhibits from the respective era.

  • Some very interesting, well-laid out (imaginatively so) and well presented exhibits, with a good variety of displays. Well worth a visit.  more »
