    Medieval crossbows in museums of Germany.

    Post by RusoTuristo on Wed Jul 25, 2012 6:51 am

    Good afternoon!
    Excuse I don't speak English.

    I go to Germany. The territory Cologne - Nuremberg - Kassel.
    I look for information on museums where there are crossbows.
    Crossbows of the 16th eyelid are very interesting.
    Now I know museums:
    - Rothenburg ob der Tauber - museum (4 or 5 pieces)
    - Suhl - Waffenmuseum (1 piece)
    - Nurnberg - Germanisches Nationalmuseum (a little)
    - Erbach - Palace (medieval weapon. Crossbows - I do not know)
    - Burg Eltz (there are crossbow. photography is forbidden)
    - Burg Altena (medieval weapon. Crossbow - I do not know)

    What else there is a museum in this area with Crossbows? I will be grateful to information.

    Almost every "Burg" in Germany has some crossbows on the walls. Here is one I visited a year ago south of Koblez:

    https://www.google.se/maps/place/Stolzenfels+Castle/@50.303198,7.592304,2a,90y,90t/data=!3m5!1e2!3m3!1s58811648!2e1!3e10!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x3be8d9a641067bce!6m1!1e1

    Entrance was cheap and if youre intrested in medieval castles you have #Burg Eltz" north of the Mosel river, northwest of Koblenz. Thats my number one medieval castle.

    I think I saw some crossbows even a few weeks ago in Koblenz in the medieval section of 
     Wehrtechnisce Studiensammlung (the link now included)

    Most weapons in here are from the latest 100 years. Dont miss this place if going to germany. Theres nothing else in europe like this... Arrowshooting weapons for  underwater special operations, Submachineguns hidden in cases, weapons where the barrel has exploded... you name it! 99% firearms and only some crossbows.
