The Shoe Museum was founded by the descendants of a local dynasty of shoemakers in the late twentieth century. They managed to collect more than two thousand pairs of shoes from around the world! Here you can see traditional national footwear, such as sharp-nosed Turkish shoes or Chinese sandals, and quite exotic items like sandals from tires.
The pearls of the collection are shoes of famous people from different eras. These include the ankle boots of the Austrian Empress Elisabeth, the boots of the fashionmonger Bavarian King Ludwig II, the shoes of Pope Benedict XVI and sneakers of known athletes. 500 shoe horns are also on display in the museum.
