Vischer Palace

will be open from 22th of May every Saturday and Sunday from 2.00 p.m. – 5.00 p.m.

The imposing building which today hosts the town museum was built between 1787 – 1791 by the head of the 'Calwer Compagnie' (Calw Cloth Manufacturing and Trading Company), Johann Martin Vischer, according to the plans of the ducal court architect, Reinhard Fischer from Stuttgart. Some rooms have been preserved in their original state and provide an insight into the style of refined home furnishing of the time. In 18 rooms the museum provides interesting information on the history of the town, special events and important persons.

Themes are, among others: the 'Calwer Compagnie' as an important economic factor in Württemberg, the life and work of the world-famous chemist's family Gärtner, of the Calw citizen Ulrich Rülein and his most important book on mining and the rural world of the 'Calwer Wald' (the woodlands West of Calw, near Altburg).
