Small cutural museum
Aug. 2017 • Couples
This little village of Oberwesel is on the banks of the Rhine River, worth a stop for a drink or a bite to eat, museum is good .
The village is worth walking ,only a few streets that contain , restaurants, beer haus's ,some small food shops and souvenir sellers. There is the remains of a castle, Fort Schonburg at one end , but did not have the time to visit ,it is a fair hike away, I think the castle now contains a hotel.
There are two churches worth visiting, St Martins Kirche and Liebrauen Kirche . This was a quick little two hour stop while waiting for our tour group, a leg stretch moment.

Enjoyable and easy

This small museum can be seen in an hour, but you might spend two because the exhibits are so good. The museum's exhibits are varied and there's probably a little something for everyone: coopering, fashion, history, wine witches, and fascinating information about the Rhine. It's close to restaurants and an excellent ice cream shop - take the time to go, it's worth it!

We visited this museum on a rainy day. It was interesting but not over the top. If you have spare time and are looking for something to do then visit this museum.

Interesting @ Instructive
Oct. 2013 • Couples
A visit to Culture House - Kulturhaus - in Oberwesel is fascinating and very much instructive. The river Rhine - Europe's largest river - has an exciting history to tell. Just walk through the museum and use the display facilities that will inform you in detail. From the ancient days boats were pulled upstream by horses and more recently last century's frozen ice cap and escapades. Many brilliant photos are on display with in depth explanation. From the first Rader Boat that radiated certain witchcraft till the modern barges that passes the Rhine up and down every day and night. Very enjoyable, even more it enriches your knowledge in relatively short span of time. Highly recommended.

Most interesting

As we had an apointment for a tour elswhere and the museum nearly closed we had to rush through the museum in 45 minutes, which is not enough if one wishes to see the most interesting documentaries in the small cine part. Surely we will visit this museum again a next time... The museum shows the aspects of urban history Oberwesel from origin to the present: Roman Amphora, development of the medieval city, history of Schönburg and wine market, engravings, portraits, precious relics and Church robes, retained the original shop of the Hofmann vinery, memories from Rhine period, all this over two floors. The third floor is dedicated to the Rhine shipping and salmon fisheries (models, phased situ, dokumentaires). Modern communication technology makes it also possible that visitors can watch the ships on the Rhine.
