Stadtmuseum Warleberger Hof
(City and Maritime Museum)
The City and Maritime Museum displays its exhibits in two historic buildings: the Warleberger Hof and the historic fish auction hall right on the edge of Kiel Fjord.
The City Museum is located in Warleberger Hof. This building dates back to the early 17th century and has a medieval vaulted cellar. It is Kiel’s oldest manor house. The building has undergone extensive renovations in the past few years. It now offers, across three floors, an impressive, wheelchair accessible setting for a wide variety of special exhibitions on the city’s history and cultural history of the 19th and 20th century.
Highlights of the museum
On display in the cellar vault, along with the building’s traditional stove and water tank, is a permanent exhibition on the city’s early history. Items include original woodcarvings from the gable walls of Kiel’s renaissance buildings, an impressive diorama of the 18th century cityscape, as well as silver treasures and faience ware.
