The permanent exhibition consist of three parts, telling the stories of the families of Heinrich von Strättligen, Adrian von Bubenberg and Franz Ludwig von Erlach. Visitors gain orientation with the help of the three exhibition colours, appropriately complementing each family’s coat-of-arms, which lead them through the various rooms of the exhibition. The new exhibition cubes, owing to their material character of glass and steel plate, fit in well with the existing architecture of the castle. By means of the clear language of form characterizing the exhibit stands, and their interaction with reduced graphic elements, a modern and timeless exhibition design has been developed. In addition to the classic presentation of objects in display cabinets, new media such as Touch Screens or "3D Viewers" are utilized.
