What lasts a long time finally becomes good. In 2006, the old museum of the city had to be closed, "for reasons of static nature", as the city's archivist dr. Johannes Lang explains. Thirteen years later, the historic saline box shines in a new light. Around 800 exhibitions have been selected to make Bad Reichenhall's story alive and tangible over millennia.

For the opening weekend (Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10), officials have come up with a series of events and special tours. Throughout the month of November, the Reichenhall Museum can be visited with free admission and extended opening hours – Tuesday to Sunday from 9am to 5pm. "As a thank you for this long wait," said the mayor. Herbert Lackner.

"Lots of passion" Johannes Lang was involved in the design of the museum, congratulated Mayor Lackner. For this, he expressed his gratitude to all citizens. Inner Munich architect Tido Brussig was responsible for shaping ideas. "The interaction of the historic house with the interior design was very important to us and we kept the basic structure of the entire building," Brussig explains.

The Reichenhall Museum is a museum for all generations, says the mayor. Thanks to numerous media stations, the visit becomes an experience for all sensory organs. Many legends of the Reichenhaller area can be heard in an audio station, illustrated novels illustrate crucial episodes of the city's history and a video shows a familiar conversation between a patient and a spa doctor.

The general renovation and redesign of the salt solution box resulted in costs of about 1.3 million euros. Of these, the city of Bad Reichenhall itself carries 470000 euros, the rest being covered by subsidies.
