The collection of arms
The collection of arms has been enlarged to three rooms and supplemented by new exhibits from the arms depot that have never been exhibited. The rooms are thematically arranged. The first room features cut and thrust weapons from the 15th and 16th century, weapons for tournaments and representational purposes as well as suits of armour and armaments. The second room features military cutting weapons and firearms with an exquisite collection of military pistols. The third room features an extensive collection of hunting weapons, which at the same depicts the development of various shoulder-held weapons such as wheel-lock, flintlock and percussion lock rifles. In addition, a collection of rare, very well-preserved accessories such as bullet pouches or hunting bags.
