  • One should not believe it, but the Museum is more than just a visit worth. Here the interested visitor learns a lot worth knowing

  • In a historic city Palace. Thematic overview of archaeology to arts and crafts, living and fashion of the recent past. In the middle of the pedestrian zone, visit quite convenient and rewarding. Surprisingly empty

  • While it is always a bit laboriously alone to see a museum but there's a good mixture. Had you already a castle tour with the protagonists in the picture gallery are a familiar. And then, the Mitras replica I discovered by chance makes tangible history and stories.

  • Here you can see very much. The diversity of the exhibition is very large. City history through paintings of various periods (romanticism, modernism and others orginalgetreuer equipment of rooms from the ancient time up to archaeological finds. The admission price is unusually cheap. The special exhibition for this expensive but quite interesting.
