History Museum

Recommended
This museum, housed in a former church, stands out as the major museum of the History of the Civilisation of the Upper Rhine. Visitors can admire precious 15C tapestries, a coin cabinet, a collection of weapons and terrestrial globes and an amazing curiosity cabinet. Several religious sculptures and stained-glass windows are also exhibited, among which fragments of the Danse macabre by K. Witz (15C), a fresco made during the era of the Council of Basel.
