Included in your entrance to the castle is this museum. All the exhibits are in German and English so there is no excuse not to learn about the history of medicine. A worthwhile time can be spent walking around and reading.

It is really a nice experience to understand the German pharmacy in years back. The equipment's which are displaying are really amazing and most of them are new for common people.

The main information boards and some of the displays have German and English versions, but many of the cabinets were only in German which was a shame as it was a really interesting exhibition.
