  • Spread on 2 floors in various themed rooms you can see unfortunately quickly slain by the variety of exhibits. More might be less and selected, but this collection is probably purely about quantity.

  • I'm sorry but otherwise cannot be called the mess. Joke who is looking for a highly visible collection of pig representations in all imaginable forms and want to learn our genetically very close relatives may still something related to pig, is right here. Because you can also eat pigs in the restaurant is slaughterhouse on utterly spoiled with everything what is on the grill and else as can be. In the summer the terrace is packed because it tastes just fine. So time to bring and enjoy.
