Germanisches Nationalmuseum-- Germany's largest museum of cultural history--houses an enormous collection of German cultural and art objects from prehistoric times to present day. Some highlights include the Cloth of St. Gereon, the oldest European tapestry still existing, plus portraits and paintings by Albrecht Dürer and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Most displays contain text only in German, and the layout can be a little confusing. Regardless, the quantity and quality of the collection makes this worth a stop.

  • This huge museum has a large collection and we enjoyed what we saw. However, the map provided was not easy to use and we were unable to find our way to a number of exhibits.

  • Worth stopping by early on in your visit, they'll give you a decent guide to Salzburg. Good collection and organization, but the descriptions felt lacking in both information and context. Would probably have been better with a guided tour.
  • Huge museum about the late stages of the holy Roman empire. Many different themes like music instruments, weapons, knight armor, art, craftsmanship and more. You can definitely spend the whole day there.
  • I should have gotten a tour. Be ready to spend a whole day here. This place is huge and incredible.
  • The museum has a rather "cold" atmosphere. Good items grouped well but the overall layout and presentation leaves one wanting from " one of the best museums in Germany". Good, but can be better.
  • Nice museum, big collection and some parts are interesting.
