The “Landesmuseum Württemberg,” or Württemberg State Museum, is located in Stuttgart’s Old Castle. The museum’s collection aims to trace back Baden-Württemberg’s history from the Stone Age to present. The current exhibition “The Swabians. Between Myth and Brand” will run through April 23.
The exhibition aims to depict the cultural history of Swabia spanning from the Staufer era (dynasty of German kings during the Middle Ages) to today. Works of art from the early Middle Ages to present showcase the importance of the Swabian metropolises Konstanz, Ulm, Augsburg and Stuttgart.
According to State Museum website, the exhibition also examines “perceived reality” attributed to Swabian stereotypes, such as frugal ways of spending, diligence, regimented cleaning and order, work ethics and cultural values.
The exhibition is open Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The State Museum is closed on Mondays and on April 14.
