Museums and Exhibitions

World history and exciting artifacts in historical treasure chambers

The probably most classical form of utilisation with regard to the spatiality of historic buildings are museums and exhibitions. They still enjoy great popularity among young and old people and convey the history, art and culture of past centuries in many different ways.


Whether you think of a museum of local history, for history of handcraft, a collection of weapons, a museum of art, nature, religion or even thematic touring exhibitions – the thematic topics are quite different and often-times prepared in a modern and interactive way. Present examples are the re-opened ‘Fränkische Galerie‘ at the fortress Rosenberg in Kronach (D), the bread museum at Fort Monostor in Komarom (HU) or the army museum and the museum of pewter figures at the fortres Kulmbach (D).


The Castle Forchtenstein (A) hosts Europe’s biggest private collection of weapons which was brought together by the noble family Esterhazy over the last centuries. In addition, the treasure chambers are well-equipped with ancient books, graphics and maps, porcelain, silver furniture, paintings, music instruments and many more and are open for interested visitors.
