This museum was a revelation. It is stuffed full of treasures including copes and clothing dating back to the eleventh century. It is a shame that they offer no guidebook (even in German) and allow no photography.

I was deeply impressed by the huge silk robes embroided so skillfully with golden threads, absolutely amazing. How many women and how many hours did it take to make such a robe? There is also a unique collection of valuable liturgical objects, relics, golden heavy...More
