The Rohan Castle Museum

The Saverne Museum is the oldest municipal museum in Alsace after those in Strasbourg and Colmar. In creating a museum in 1858, the city of Saverne expressed its interest and desire to preserve in a historical place "objects that bear witness to the greatness and antiquity of Saverne". These included the first archaeological discoveries made in the Saverne area, the many sandstone sculptures discovered by chance during construction or consolidation work on houses or during the digging of the Marne-Rhine canal in 1845, as well as paintings from Saverne's churches and the castle.

From the outset, the museum's aim was to preserve Saverne's heritage as a whole.
The museum was initially housed in the Saint-Michel chapel, which was located near the parish church and the castle. In 1952, the city of Saverne bought the Rohan castle from the Domaines and moved the museum to the second floor in the south wing. At the end of the 1980s, the museum moved to the central part of the castle adjoining the south wing. This was reserved for the Louise Weiss section, which opened in 1996.

Visit of the Rohan Castle Museum and its gazebo


The Rohan Castle Museum features rich archaeological collections of Gallo-Roman and medieval objects discovered in and around Saverne. The museum has three sections: art and history, Louise Weiss and archaeology.

Temporary exhibitions are regularly offered there. Possibility to visit the museum and access the castle roof, the gazebo (on request, only in the afternoon and good weather conditions).

Possibility to visit the gloriette with the Pass'Alsace: discover this unusual place overlooking landscapes and monuments with orientation tables and short historical comments. 

The cellars of the castle house the archaeological collections. On the 2nd floor, the rooms of the Art and History section are still being transformed. The rooms devoted to Louise Weiss allow visitors to understand the beginnings of European construction by discovering the avant-garde political projects that she supported between 1919 and 1934 in her international political magazine l'Europe Nouvelle: Franco-German rapprochement, the first projects for European union and the League of Nations.
