Medical students and theologians studied in the walls of the current Museum of the History of Medicine at one time: the Ingolstadt University was located here from the middle of the XV century to 1800. Celebrities such as the chief ideologue of the Counter-Reformation, Johann Eck, and founder of the mysterious Order, the creator of the secret brotherhood of the Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt, taught Here. In Mary Shelley's popular novel "Frankenstein, or The New Prometheus" (1831), medical student Victor Frankenstein created the man-monster in the walls of the university’s anatomical lab!
Today this baroque building is the most famous museum of the city. The Roman, Egyptian and Chinese medicine are presented in it among other things. People come here to look at the medical tools of the past and, of course, listen to the legend about the student, who decided to play God ... You can also walk through the idyllic botanical garden of the museum, where herbs and other plants are grown.
