One of a kind worldwide and "a must" for lovers of precious objects: The German Gemstone Museum (Deutsches Edelsteinmuseum) presents all kinds of rough and worked gemstones as well as an extensive collection of engraved objects.

On three floors with more than 10,000 exhibits almost all gemstone kinds of the world are exhibited in the German Gemstone Museum (Deutsches Edelsteinmuseum). The museum's vaulted cellar also regularly hosts temporary exhibitions on special gemstone themes.
