Fodor's Review

In a beautifully restored medieval mill with a still functioning waterwheel, this museum honoring paper, writing, and printing is wonderfully accessible. The museum is entirely hands on, and visitors leave with paper they have made, wax seals they have pressed, as well as various writing and printing samples. In addition is a wonderful permanent collection, from ancient scrolls to 20th-century newspaper-printing presses. Exhibits are in German, French, and English.
