Rosgarten Museum is located right in the middle of Constance’ historic centre. The building alone that accommodates the museum is worth seeing, built in 1454 as a guild house for butchers in Constance. The museum has been here since 1870, when it was founded by a Constance pharmacist. A broad spectrum of topics is covered from Ancient History through the Middle Ages to the 20th Century. Special features of the museum are the Richtenthal Chronicle about the events that took place during the Council of Constance (1414-1418) and a model of medieval Constance. The museum also has changing special exhibitions and offers very lively guided tours.
Our tip: only a few steps from the hustle and bustle of the pedestrian precinct is the courtyard of the museum’s cafe: a peaceful oasis of birdsong and the delicious smell of roasting coffee beans.
