On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the accession of Michael Romanov, the Landesmuseum dedicates this exhibition to the century long relationship of Württemberg and Russia. This relationship began in the 18th century and was based on several marriages between the House of Württemberg and the Russian Royal Family. Come and learn more about this splendid time and its protagonists Maria Feodorovna, Queen Katharina, Queen Olga and Wera Konstantinowa. About 200 of the more than 600 magnificent objects are from reputable Russian museums and castles, including a large part of the dowry of the fabulously wealthy czars' daughters.

We will meet at 15:00 in the courtyard of the Old Castle and start the tour at 15:15 with individual audio guides. You will have 1.5 hours for your tour and visit of the gift shop. The reduced entrance fee for us is 9 Euros p/person.

At 16:45 we will gather again and stroll together to the nearby old and famous Market Hall. There in the Restaurant Marktstüble we will have a real hearty Swabian dinner à la carte (food is in the range of 10 to 15 Euros).
