Guided tour through the exhibition

Take a journey back in time to visit the crusaders and alchemists.  The modern multi-media installation brings the story of Wulfing von Stubenberg and his crusade to life. 

In the mysterious world of alchemy we will try to unlock the alchemists’ deepest secrets about the art of making gold.  In 2005 in a hidden passageway close to the castle, the only intact alchemist’s furnace in all of Europe was found.  Marvel at the treasures that were found near the furnace.
