Museum of Palaeontology and Archaeology "Museum für Ur- und Frühgeschichte"

Mamut Ur- und Frühgeschichte Museum

The Museum for Palaeontology and Archaeology at Willibaldsburg (castle and fortification named after St. Willibald) covers the region’s history of development from the Stone Age to the Early Middle Ages. The skeletons of a mammoth, a cave hyena, a reindeer and a double burial of the Merovingian dynasty are the greatest attractions at this museum.

ATTENTION please: Some parts of the castle are undergoing restoration works at present. The courtyard is closed. Only the botanical garden “Bastionsgarten” and the Museum’s area in the “Gemmingenbau” are open. At present visitors can access the museums and the botanical garden from the Mondscheinweg road. It is not possible to reach the castle by car and park there. The “Burgschänke” castle inn is closed. For further information please contact the security service at 0049-(0)8421-6029828.

Representative of the Celtic culture are, amongst others, a sword dating from the 4th century BCE. The finds from the Roman Age are particularly manifold, for example those from the castellum at Pfünz and the only groma (Roman survey equipment) extant north of the Alps.
