The cosy little Muzikinstumente-Museum der Völker is home to 1500 musical instruments from all over the world, all of them collected by one family of music teachers. The son of the family, Askold zum Eck, can play them all and will happily demonstrate for hours. Visitors are welcome to have a go at anything from an African drum to an Indian sitar.
The town museum won an award a few years back for its eclectic collection ranging from embroidery (originally manufactured in the building) to 4700 animal specimens and religious objects.
