It then enters the cellars to approach the world of mushrooms. Many explanatory boards. Some of the exposed mushrooms are very amazing to observe. It's too bad that some windows are covered with condensation. But it is the temperature and hygrometry of the place that wants that. The different types of culture of mushrooms are presented but little mushrooms out of Earth when we came here. However, a lot of Oyster Mushrooms with some unexpected color. It is very cool inside (14 / 15 ° C) so appropriate clothing. Possibility to buy mushrooms at the exit at very affordable prices.show original
Achille GuerinThe visit is interesting but the windows are antiquated, with moisture, the resin surrounding mushrooms are yellowish, too old. In short, this museum practice much too high a price for her performance. I do not recommend. (price: €8 40)show original

Christian KolbUnfortunately no signs in the German language, however, there is a manual on German to the take. The first part of which appears to be instructive, with exhibits from plastic with German seedy caption, cave for the rear part of the cave is all the more impressive with the different mushroom varieties. The shop is then again something skinny, except mushrooms de Paris and Shitake, whether fresh or dried, is the selection of products obvious. Despite all worth a visit. The price seems normal for the local conditions. Little extra: In a small plastic bag, you can fill its own substrate and grow mushrooms at home.show original
