© K. Lange

This Renaissance building from the middle of the 16th century received its present appearance between the years 1666-1666. Parts of the interior, such as the oak spiral staircase and Baroque stucco ceilings are still preserved and are popular attractions for visitors. The four-sided enclosed Arkadenhof hosts concerts and readings. You will find a wide range of prehistory and early history, urban and cultural history, urban crafts and folklore. Noteworthy are a plague cart dating from 1607, Napoleon's cup from 1813, the Polymobil of 1907 and the original duffel bag owned by Ringelnatz. The poet Joachim Ringelnatz (real name Hans Böttiger) was born in 1883 in Wurzen/Saxony and died in 1934 in Berlin. His collections of poems are still very well known today: "Die Schnupftabakdose" (1912) and "Kuttel Daddeldu" (1920) are very well known today.
