Breadmaking Museum Ulm

The Breadmaking Museum in the historical salt storehouse in Ulm was founded in 1955 as the first bread museum in the world. Since 2019, this informative museum has also been home to a number of works of art from various eras.

The exhibition at the Breadmaking Museum is divided up into two parts and the art collection is on display in a separate area, featuring works of art from various periods between the 15th and 21st centuries. Artwork by Rembrandt appears alongside masterpieces by the likes of Chagall, Pechstein, Picasso, Lüpertz and Jankowski. Many of the works of art from different points in time address the relationship between mankind and nature, religious and ethical questions of nutrition and distribution, and the place of the individual in society.

In the other area of the museum, it's all about bread! There are 19 themed tables and installations featuring all kinds of exhibits that depict the social, cultural and technological aspects of agriculture, food and bread through the ages. The issue of food for everyone is also broached since this remains one of the main challenges we face now and in the future despite it having been a concern throughout the history of mankind. Opening times: Monday: 10 am–3 pm, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday: 10 am–5 pm, Wednesday: 10 am–7 pm.
