Coat of Arms Gallery in Regensburg


The German Coat of Arms Museum has moved into a new home in Regensburg.

 

In numerous conference and training rooms, the coats of arms are displayed on a wall surface of more than 400 square meters over a length of about 300 meters.

 

Previously, the coats of arms in four floors of a former Hohenzollern Castle in Berchtesgaden were open to the public.

 

Around 4,000 hand-carved hand-painted coats of arms throughout Germany were displayed to the public on a daily basis by the former German Coat of Arms Museum in Berchtesgaden. On four floors of a large house - a former Hohenzollern castle - thousands of visitors passed through twenty sometimes oversized rooms. The coats of arms covered the walls from floor to ceiling like a colorful mosaic, colorful and rich in shapes.'

 

The photos below show the coats of arms in the former premises of a Hohenzollernschlösschen in Berchtesgaden.
