“Garden of animated silence”

We want to preserve the wild character of the garden. So we only cleared it very gently. During opening times our visitors are welcome to visit the garden, too.

Enter the garden at your own risk!


For fire safety reasons people with a walking disability and wheelchair users can visit Villa Freischütz only in the company of a staff member. Please notify us in advance.  

  • A lift leads to both floors of the museum. And a gravel walk leads to the museum. 
  • The museum houses a toilet for the disabled.
  • As a historic villa Villa Freischütz has literally many thresholds and bumps. We try to make access to the museum as easy as possible for all visitors.
