Banquet hall. Synagogue. Electric store. Place of the history of democracy. Cultural monument of national importance. The Salmen has an eventful history that makes the building unique in Offenburg's city center. Since May 2022, Der Salmen has been open to all visitors as a modern museum after a renovation phase. 200 years of democratic history as well as current democratic events can be experienced in the Salmen through multimedia. What does democracy mean? What kind of society do we live in? And what does being free actually mean? These and similar questions are raised in the interactive exhibition, which not only conveys the past, but also invites visitors to engage with current social events.
