Ausstellung der Länder
Hohenstaufen Rhine-Neckar Region
The three states of Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse are jointly presenting a major medieval exhibition for the first time. This cross-state orientation is programmatic: Concomitant with the exhibition that presents the Rhine-Main-Neckar region, Northern Italy and the Kingdom of Sicily as three regions of the Hohenstaufen rulers’ activity, historically significant sites in the three participating states around the metropolitan Rhine-Neckar region will be displaying their share of Hohenstaufen history in 2010.
Much like the sphere of activity of the Hohenstaufen themselves who rose from a ducal family to be the most important dynasty of rulers of the High Middles Ages, the radius of the Hohenstaufen region also steadily expands. Thus, places and sites in Bavaria and Alsace shaped by the Hohenstaufen era are definitely worthwhile destinations.
