History Museum
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.

  • The Germanisches Nationalmuseum is really very worthwhile! The entrance, beautifully, the shop also and the exhibitions - including the very beautiful rooms - are very good. Why then not honored? It is missing a few highlights of the art...

  • Great place for history lovers! Come early in the day, while you're still in good form, becouse there is lot to see. Free entrance on Wensdays after 6 p.m.
  • Many objects of significance to that area of Germany including household, religious, and historical artifacts displayed in a well designed layout.
  • 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.
  • Interesting museum but the audio guides are available only in German and English
  • It's alright, I wouldn't pay to go. Instead wait until Wednesday night when there's free entry. The exhibits were rather sterile and quite difficult to navigate
