Karrasburg Museum Coswig

Karrasburg Museum Coswig - small, but in a place steeped in history, rich in information about the city and the region, full of ideas and suitable for large and small visitors. In 1996 the museum was reopened in the villa known as "Karrasburg". The house got its name from a moated castle that stood on this spot in the 15th century and was inhabited by the Karrace family. Since then, the small museum has been showing interesting facts about the city and region, whether the first Saxon automobile, one of the most beautiful still preserved Saxon village churches or interesting facts about the Elbe can be discovered here on site. In addition, four changing exhibitions on a wide variety of topics are presented annually. The Karrasburg includes both large and small visitors in all exhibitions. In addition to interesting exhibits, there are often stations for discovery, research, puzzles, games and lingering.
