||The Museum of Bread Culture (Museum der Brotkultur)
For over 6000 years, bread has been a part of man’s history. It is thus an indispensable basis of human existence, culture and civilisation.
To document the importance of bread for the human race, the “Museum der Brot Kultur” was founded in 1955 as the “German Bread Museum(Deutsches Brotmuseum), the first museum of its kind in the world.
The collection now has a total of 16,000 objects and works of art in 30 sections, of which 700 are on permanent exhibition. They illustrate the history of bread making from the technical aspect and also the cultural and sociological history of bread and hunger. It is the world’s largest collection of the cultural history of bread.
Since 1991, the “Museum der Brot Kultur” has been housed in the historical “Salzstadel” (Salt Barn) a principle building of historic importance dating from 1592. The interior was renovated in 2006.
