" Discover the present using a mirror to the past and learn all the secrets of Kochersberg’s rich and authentic heritage. "
The Friends of the Kochersberg House, who founded an association in 1980 to preserve the rich local heritage, refused to create a static museum, intended to make visitors reminisce and long for the past. Quite the contrary, they wanted a lively “House” which would teach how to understand the present by looking at the past. Every year the “House” organizes a ten-month exhibition which opens in December. Each exhibition has a definite topic and the objects are on loan from many collectors. The visitors can compare their ways of life with those of previous generations. In between two exhibitions, the “House” holds its “Artists' Exposition” in October and November with paintings, drawings, sculptures, inlays, ceramics, stained-glass windows etc… commented by the artists themselves. A special room is reserved for the permanent exhibition: authentic costumes from Kochersberg with variations depending on religion, status or wealth. The Association puts out a biannual magazine, available in Truchtersheim. The “Kocherschbari” are well documented thanks to their numerous authors, poets and artists who love Kochersberg.
