“A bizarre but impressive collection of pigs”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

This little museum was one of the stops of the city sightseeing bus tour, so is a great place to stop off at, especially on a sunny day as it is also a bar/restaurant with outside seating.

The museum has to be seen to be believed and has an extremely large (40,000 items if I remember correctly) of pig related stuff.

Examples include piggy banks, toy pigs, pig art, videos (e.g. Miss Piggy from the muppets), beer glasses, crockery, jewellery, ties etc etc.

There is also interesting facts, historical information and trivia (in both German and English) about this animal that the museum owners obviously feel so passionate about.

The amount of pig related stuff that exists has to be seen to be believed. This place is definitely worth a visit.
