In "Landeszeughaus" , next to the Landhaus you will find one of the biggest collections of medieval arms and iron-armories in the whole world ! And the most interesting fact about this museum is , that the Zeughaus still looks the same as hundreds of years ago and has a total of 30.000 rifles, helebards, swords, guns, etc.
You could equip an medieval army of several hundred men with these weapons and even the stairs are made in a way, that the troops may march into the different floors, take their weapons and get into war...!

is open tuesday till Sunday 10.00a.m. - 03.00p.m. from Nov.3rd till Jan.6th

I took my pics many years ago, when nobody cared about it, but in summer 2005 they were very strict telling me : NO Photographs !!!
