Nice atmosphere. absolutely great woodcarvings. you can sit on the first row of what was once the student's benches. Next to the lecturer's chair there are two statues showing all the muscles.

As a medical person and history buff, this was a must see. Its inexpensive, quick to visit and unique. As an orthopedist, I particularly enjoyed some historic texts showing orthopedic care for a tibia fracture and hip fracture.

The reconstruction efforts that went into putting this unique room back together after the destruction of WWII are truly amazing. Definitely worth a look.

Starting at 0400 hrs each day, an insight into how the field of anatomy & physiology become more informed over hundreds of years. Well worth the time for a visit. Demolished in the 2nd world war however rebuilt given its historical importance.

Only 3 Euros entrance and a short visit but definitely worth it. The room itself is fascinating bit it’s the artwork and coats of arms on the walls all around that surprised us.
