In September 2022, it will be four hundred years since Heidelberg became the scene of the Thirty Years' War. Together with the State Office for the Preservation of Historical Monuments in the Regional Council of Stuttgart, the Kurpfälzische Museum is going beyond this event to show how life on the Rhine and Neckar was shaped in turbulent times. On display are numerous archaeological finds from Germany, France and Switzerland, including one of the oldest equestrian figures north of the Alps, a Celtic helmet from the Altrhein, the Heidelberg Tilly find and several showpieces from the Kaiseraugst silver treasure. Together with paintings, graphic works and a virtual Heidelberg panorama from 1620, a multi-layered picture of the history of war and peace on the Rhine and Neckar emerges.
