  • Beautiful historical place with the nice and smooth vibe. To be honest, I am not fan of museum but I am happy that I have visited this place and got some information and knowledge through visiting this place. some interesting information about Deutschland's history and about inhabitants. I definitely suggest you guys to visit this place.
  • An amazing community that was started over 500 years ago to help people who wanted to work but could not afford housing. The museum detailing history is a must see, and it is a worthwhile visit for the beauty of the buildings.
