Located in the late-Baroque residence of the artist Johann Christian Wentzinger (1710-1797), this Freiburg museum displays treasures from 900 years of Freiburg history.
Among the topics dealt with are the city's founding by the House of Zähringen, monasteries and foundations, and crafts and coinage. As a preparation for a tour of the town, take a look at the model showing Freiburg in about 1600 with its medieval walls and city gates and a further model showing the town within its baroque star-shaped moated fortification in about 1700. In the salon there is a model of the cathedral construction site.
