Reichenau Museum

Reichenau, Germany

Visitors to the monastic UNESCO island learn about the cultural and historical significance of Reichenau in three separate museums. Together with the three Romanesque churches, the four museum buildings form an information network. Explore the Middle Ages in the old town hall where you discover the cathedral’s architectural history and the important work of Reichenau book illumination.
