It is an amazing collection of art, cultural objects, documents, fashion and clothing, toys, and everyday objects, all related to German-speaking cultures. It is...More

Large museum with a focus on medieval and early modern art. Also special exhibitions. A large and great museum - take your time, at least four hours, if you have never been there before.
