If you're considering visiting the museum, my advice is a huge DON'T! If you speak german, it might be (just might, cause sure it doesn't look like) interesting. But if you don't, forget it! Despite being the main attraction of a TOURISTIC route, there are...More

Not a very imaginative presentation. We found the historical information interesting but it was almost all just photos with written info and very small printing at that. The photos of the furnished rooms on the museum's website were very misleading and a disappointment. The current...More

This museum hosts the history of the Teutonic Knight. Since this is a part of history that interests me, I found the museum very enjoyable. I think we also got discount tickets for coffee in the castle grounds. The museum itself is in a castle.
