Very interesting museum with an impressive collection of uniforms and militaria. Beautiful displayed. Confirms that as a high ranking officer, you have a much better chance of getting back home. Many officer’s uniforms in great shape displayed, few of regular soldiers.
A stop by to stretch the legs and have a nice walk around the old part to the castle. Cool place.
