Haus zum Kirschgarten (Kirschgarten House)

Haus zum Kirschgarten (Kirschgarten House) Review

This 18th-century home was built as a palace for a young silk-ribbon manufacturer. Nowadays it contains the 18th- and 19th-century collections of the city's Historical Museum, displayed as furnishings in period rooms. The timepieces, porcelain, and faience are especially outstanding. It's free the first Sunday of the month.
