An extremely quirky collection which isn’t really set up terribly well for English speaking visitors (they have one leaflet and all of the rest of the labelling and the laminated guides in each room are all in German only) but this belies an incredibly quirky...More

Located somewhat out of the historical centre in a mansion, it receives only a fraction of the visitors it should. The plus point is that it is very quiet and no crowding. Parts of he mansion itself are worth seeing, but it is especially the...More

Lots of medieval sculptures and oil paintings from the 16/17/18 Cents. Some modern stuff as well. If you like art then this is worth a visit - if not then I would suggest giving it a miss. The lay out is a bit confusing -...More

I enjoyed very much my visit here. It is very quiet and does not seem to receive a lot of visitors. I came across some lovely paintings (including a beautiful Cranach and a wonderful Botticelli). The interior of the building itself is a joy to...More

I spent 1 1/2 hours in this gallery. I am not greatly interested in medieval christian wooden sculptures, which they have a fine collection of, but there is more to the gallery than this fine collection. On upper floors there are heaps of late-medieval and...More

I went to the museum to see the photographs of Magnum photographer Dennis Stock (1928-2010) which was just brilliant. This exhibition is on until 25 January 2015, don’t miss it. The permanent collection of the museum includes mainly art from the 16th and 17th century...More

This museum is not that small but in the end it is: the collection is not world shocking with one Rembrandt (or two, depending on the definition) as the highlight. The exhibition was rather good but too spacious for the small drawings. It probably doesn't...More
