Overview

The Zeughaus houses the Kölnisches Stadtmuseum. On top of the tower is a winged golden car which has apparently nothing at all to do with the old building underneath it. The Fiesta, which was produced in Cologne, was celebrated by the artist H.A. Schmidt, who created the memorial car and in doing so caused bitter controversy. This is part of Cologne's local history, which is the theme of the Zeughaus. Among other pieces from Cologne's rich and varied past which are on display here is the Gothic city seal.
