When in September 1631, the protestant Armies of King Gustav II. Adolf of Sweden and Elector Johann Georg I joined forces in September 1631, they defeated the imperial-league army under Tilly. A decisive point in the course of the conflict: Gustav Adolf could now make his triumphant ascent of the German throne and along with it secured the survival of protestantism.

In 1646, peace was declared for electoral Saxony in Eilenburg - which also led to pace is Westphalia in 1648. A defining era – far beyond the region. The planned exhibitions are intended to commemorate these events. To pay tribute, to remember and also to shake up.
