City Museum and Wadgasserhof - From Tomb of the Carolingian to TV

The City Museum (Stadtmuseum) or the Theodor-Zink-Museumis the main museum and historical complex in the city of Kaiserslautern. It wasfounded in 1978 and is named after scientist and researcher Theodor Zink, whomade a decisive contribution to the creation of the collection.

In the museum you will find objects of everyday life and art of theNeolithic age- ladies’ earrings, combs, jar fragments with paintings. Afragment of the tomb of the Carolingian era and the gilded statue of FrederickBarbarossa (original copy) attract attention with their craftsmanship. Thereare exhibits dating to the XIX and XX centuries: paintings and artefacts fromthe Biedermeier Era (1815-1848), the product of plants and factories of thecity, including furniture, bicycles, TV sets and much more. The inner courtyardof the complex is worth a separate examination. It is a rare architectural exampleof the quadrilateral courtyard lined with half-timbered houses. Wadgasserhof isthe former chapel adjacent to the exhibition center of the City Museum. It wasbuilt in 1475 and has become a place of pilgrimage for believers. Later, itbecame the seat of Electress Maria Eleonora of Brandenburg. It has preservedthe unique molding that has been carefully restored. In our days it hostsexhibitions.
