This museum hosts the history of the Teutonic Knight. Since this is a part of history that interests me, I found the museum very enjoyable. I think we also got discount tickets for coffee in the castle grounds. The museum itself is in a castle.

Not a very imaginative presentation. We found the historical information interesting but it was almost all just photos with written info and very small printing at that. The photos of the furnished rooms on the museum's website were very misleading and a disappointment. The current...More

If you're considering visiting the museum, my advice is a huge DON'T! If you speak german, it might be (just might, cause sure it doesn't look like) interesting. But if you don't, forget it! Despite being the main attraction of a TOURISTIC route, there are...More

Again: we are sorry! We asked our staff and got to know, that the paper was out. Now it is available again... But nevertheless there are english translations on steles in nearly every room of the museum! Please do have a look!

This museum covers the local town, an impressive dollhouse collection and the history of the Teutonic Order, for which the building was once the main base. There is also one temporary exhibit, while we were there on the solar system. The museum is much bigger...More
