But our tour guide said it was something we had to do, and so we did. Boy was she ever right! If you are anywhere in the area I highly recommend a visit here. I think you could do a complete tour in about an hour (we did). We were in low season and my husband and I were the... More

Fabulous place where you can see and hear one of the largest German collections of self-playing musical instruments from the 18th to the 20th century. The instruments are housed in the Bromserhof which is near the famous Drosselgasse. The impressive old building dates back to the 13th century. In this museum you can see the tiniest music box to the... More

Probably one of the most amazing attractions I have ever visited. You don't have to be musically inclined to be totally entranced by this unbelievable collection of 'Mechanical' musical instruments. Siegfried Wendel against all odds pursued his passion for collecting these 'gems', finally finding a home for them in Rudesheim. Enchanting venue in itself with an amazing Medieval history of...

I probably wouldn't have gone here if it hadn't been part of the cruise. I was pleasantly surprised and hadn't realised how many different types of mechanical music machines there were. I especially liked the one with the violins. The old stone part of the building is worth a close look with its ancient paintings on the walls.

Not everybody likes mechanical music but forget your prejudices and enjoy your visit to Siegfried's Mechanical Music Museum. Some of the exhibits are from early 20th century honkytonks, others from circuses and carnies, some with remarkable mechanised figures, others where the mid boggles at the ingenuity of the inventors (the machine which plays eight (?) violins simultaneously) and some which...

The 1 hour tour takes you to this marvelous and enchanting world of mechanic music. The guide demonstrates some of the cases, some of them are nearly a full orchestra in a cabinet!! One of the best and unique museums I have ever been to. My advice is to come as soon as you get to the city and ask... More

This beautiful old mansion holds the lifetime collection of a man's passion for mechanical music machines. It really is an excellent and extensive mixture of musical exotica. Fairground organs, grand pianos, music boxes, parlour entertainment cabinets, everything under the sun. Ingenious, charming and fascinating. Wonderful guide who was a fountain of information and wound up or switched on the various... More
