Step off the beaten tourist path with a visit to Jüdisches Museum, narrating the rich culture and history of the city's Jewish community. The museum, which opened in 1998 on the 50th anniversary of a pogrom commonly known as the Night of Broken Glass, is housed in two classical villas built in the 19th century for notable local bankers. The site includes a learning center named in honor of Oscar Schindler, an industrialist who saved the lives of 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust. Explore the permanent exhibit, which displays works by painters Ludwig Meidner and Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, as well as numerous cultural artifacts taken from synagogues and Jewish homes. The museum maintains a busy schedule of special events throughout the year, so check the online calendar for more information before you make the trip.
