The Reformation was already in full swing when the New Provost's House was built in Mühlberg in 1531 on behalf of the Cistercian nunnery. As a result of the church renewal movement, the monastery was dissolved just eight years later.

Finally, in 1547, the Catholic army of Emperor Charles V and the troops of the Protestant Schmalkaldic League faced each other in a decisive battle near Mühlberg. The Catholics won, the leader of the Protestants, Elector Johann Friedrich of Saxony, was captured. This story is told in the museum "Mühlberg 1547", which is housed in the provost's place of the former Cistercian nunnery. With its large-format wall and ceiling paintings from the 16th century, the Provost's Office is itself the largest "exhibit".

The museum focuses on a media production that presents the Battle of Mühlberg from three different perspectives. The confessional, social and political debates as well as the afterlife and commemoration are shown in the exhibition. The various testimonies of faith, such as relics and figures of saints, can also be seen, as can illustrations and paintings illustrate the background and debates of the Reformation.

There is also a lot to tell about the history of the city: the beginnings of the city through the castle and palace, its development as a double city, its changing country affiliation, life on the river with handicrafts and floods and also the memory of the prisoner of war and special camp.

Due to the warlike event, Mühlberg became a historical place of remembrance with a European dimension. That is why Mühlberg is also one of the "Sites of the Reformation" that may bear the European Cultural Seal.

The museum is housed in a historic building, the Provost's Church of the former Cistercian nunnery. The numerous steps, door thresholds and different building levels in the exhibition rooms were designed with great effort in the form of custom-made mobile ramps, an electric platform lift and an elevator car as barrier-free as possible. In order to get from the ground floor to the upper exhibition levels, an elevator car can be used as an alternative to the staircase.

Accessibility by public transport: approx. 300 m (4 min) on foot from the Mühlberg bus station stop.

t Information for guests with reduced mobility

Short description

ATTENTION, PLEASE:
  • The museum is housed in a historic building, the Provost's Church of the former Cistercian nunnery. The numerous steps, door thresholds and different building levels in the exhibition rooms were designed with great effort in the form of custom-made mobile ramps, an electric platform lift and an elevator car to be as barrier-free as possible.
  • In order to get from the ground floor to the upper exhibition levels, an elevator car can be used as an alternative to the staircase.
  • Access is via the ground floor and the mezzanine ("Stadtgeschichte 1") on the narrow side and the upper exhibition area ("Stadtgeschichte 2") on the long side.
  • The elevator car measures only 82cm x 105cm and therefore does not offer sufficient turning space for wheelchair users.
  • Museum visitors without residual walking ability can therefore only use the exhibition rooms on the ground floor barrier-free.
General information on accessibility:
  • no designated disabled parking spaces available
  • Indoor access: stepless / via ramp
  • Outdoor access: stepless
  • Guest toilet for guests with restricted mobility, steplessly accessible via ramp. Door width: 93 cm, movement area in front of WC: 150 cm x 150 cm, right: 91 cm x >150 cm, left: 130 cm x 90 cm, handles available
Special features:
  • There are 10 lightweight folding chairs available, which can be used as mobile seating in the exhibition rooms.

      • The main entrance of the museum can be reached via a step of 15 cm. Right to the right there is a barrier-free side entrance (door sill almost 3 cm).
      • Access to the top floor by elevator is only possible with a residual walking ability, see short description above.
      • On the upper floor, there are many steps to overcome in the individual exhibition rooms, for each of which custom-made mobile ramps are available:

        • Room "Monastery": step 5 cm or 7 cm (depending on direction)
        • Transition from room "wall painting" to "city history": 14 cm
        • The transition from the room "City History" to the room "Prisoner of War Camp" is infinitely variable thanks to an electrical auxiliary device: by remote control, a staircase transforms into a platform lift and transports the visitor up and down the great difference in height. An accompanying person is required for service, the museum staff will be happy to assist you.
