The Historical Museum of the Palatinate (the name for this region of Germany, derived from the Latin word palatium, meaning “palace”) references the period in Germany history during which it was ruled over by a prince of Holy Roman Empire. The floor plan of this museum is rather confusing as we had to pass through a special exhibition area (requiring a separate ticket) in order to visit the museum’s small Luther Room, which includes a film about the history of the Reformation, a Luther Bible and a copy of the Heidelberg Catechism. Note: Exhibits are mostly in German so have Google Translate ready to go. The Wine Museum exhibit features the oldest bottle of wine in the world.
