The Staffelsee Museum Seehausen impressively presents the extraordinary history of this fishing village, including the excavations on the island of Wörth, the origin of special artisan craftwork and the fishing grounds of the Staffelsee.
Skulls and bones are evidence of Celts and Romans, and there are wall remains of a church stemming from the 7th century. They were found on one of the seven islands in the Staffelsee, the island of Wörth. Yet despite these sensational discoveries, which can be admired in the Staffelsee Museum Seehausen, no other archaeological excavations have been scheduled.
Reverse glass painting also made history in Seehausen. Two of the most important painter dynasties of this traditional craftsmanship – Gege and Noder – are from the little village on the Staffelsee. There they created reverse glass paintings for over two centuries. Their individual works of art particularly stood out due to high quality.
The abundance of fish in the Staffelsee helped provide the villagers in Seehausen with another branch of trade: fishing. The Seehausen Museum of Local History describes its history, which was characterised by fisherman and fishing, with love for detail. And so the Still Aquarium exhibits everything from whitefish to catfish.
