The exhibition about the eventful history of Rastatt was re-arranged in 2004. The exhibition covers more than 300 years of history beginning with the Palatinate War of Succession in 1689, which destroyed the former borders, and the reconstruction of the city as new home to the Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm von Baden-Baden.

Three major parts of the history of the city are presented with audiovisual technology: the baroque Planstadt and residence Rastatt, the construction and de-construction of the city wall in the late 19th century, the economic revival in the 1950s and the presentation of the nature reservoir “Rastatter Rheinau.” A large city model showcases the latest developments in the city.
