Colonial History Museum

Ausstellung zur Kolonialgeschichte – this museum in Fröhstockheim makes an almost forgotten chapter of history come alive

In Fröhstockheim, you can gain an insight into the military history of the former German colonies in Africa. Norbert Linke has built up a private collection dealing with the troops (“Schutztruppe”) in the African colonies of the German Empire. The museum has been open to the public since 2004. An exhibition area of approx. 50 square metres hosts numerous original exhibits, such as uniforms, equipment, documents, photos, books, money and mail. The legacies of several persons, including well-known officers and the collector’s grandfather, Staff Sergeant Leonhard Köberlein (7th Camel Company), make this historical period come alive.

The museum is open to groups of 5 or more persons. The guided tour takes about 1 hour. Opening hours and admission by appointment.

Elfleinshäusla Museum

The house of the Elflein family – life and work in the 19th and 20th centuries

An old, restored, typically Franconian home of craftspeople and winegrowers has been turned into a museum to show what life was like in the good old days. Almost all the original household goods have been preserved, such as the furniture, the stove, the pots etc. The heart of the building is the fully equipped smithy at the entrance. The house also features a remarkable vaulted cellar, and the yard offers another rare sight – the original earth closet (outhouse).


Opening hours:
May to October: Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 2 to 6 p.m. and by appointment
Guided tours, including demonstration of a blacksmith’s work if possible, for groups of up to 20 persons by appointment (in German)
