Situated in the baroque halls of Karlsburg Castle, the Pfinzgaumuseum features the history of the Durlach district of Karlsruhe, an independent city until 1938.
Populated as early as the Roman Age, the town was promoted to the rank of a city by the Staufer dynasty. From 1565 to 1718, Durlach was the residence of the Baden-Durlach margraviate. The exhibition consists of a chronologically arranged tour through the history of Durlach. Objects relating to art, cultural, social and everyday history are on display. The turbulent past of Durlach - now the biggest district of Karlsruhe - is illustrated by a model of Karlsburg Castle before 1689, a model of the town around 1800, a large collection of Durlach Faience, numerous products made by Durlach's industrial enterprises, documents, paintings and photographs.
The permanent exhibition does not provide any English texts.
Special exhibitions on Durlach's history are regularly held at the Pfinzgaumuseum to complement the permanent exhibition. The special exhibitions do not provide any English texts.
