Afterwork. Spiritual. Artistic.

Our series of events invites you to an after-work event at the Diocesan Museum on two evenings. The EveningOases combine everyday experience, experiencing art and a spiritual impulse – all in a relaxed atmosphere. In this way, the first evening hour takes on a special quality.
A warm invitation to all those who would like to end their day in a spiritual and artistic way or start the evening in the museum.
Organised by: Federica Viviani (Diocesan Museum)
All events with advance booking. Duration approx. 45 minutes. Admission free.


New perspectives on old art

Questioning the familiar and discovering the new: Our EinBlick event series focuses on works of art from very different eras. This year’s programme ranges from high medieval church treasures to artistic innovations from the Renaissance and Romanticism to recent contemporary art. During the “Monastery Experience” festival week (16-23 June 2024), we will follow in the footsteps of the former Rottenburg monastery landscape and explore the rich spiritual and material heritage of monastic culture. In guided tours, conferences and lectures, we will bring history and the present into a dialogue and search together for access to the world of life and art of yesterday and today.

All lectures and guided tours require advance booking. Duration approx. 60 minutes. Admission €5 per person for guided tours and lectures.

Art and music

Feeling images, seeing words, hearing feelings

People see works of art differently when they listen to music at the same time. Once again this year, we would like to invite you to listen to small and large concerts with various ensembles and solo artists in the attractive rooms of the Diocesan Museum and at the same time experience the works in the collection in a new way.

Duration approx. 60 minutes each. Admission €10 per person or as described in the event.

Art Talks for Women

This series of events for women is designed to enable participants to explore works of art through dialogue. Above all, space is given to exchange ideas in discussion. We will find a very individual approach to individual works of art in an open round.

Speaker: Judith Welsch-Körntgen (art educator / theologian, Stuttgart)

All women’s talks with advance booking. Duration approx. 60 minutes. Admission € 5 per person.

Museum right here, right now

Museum education and art education in the Diocesan Museum

This year, we are relying especially on our noses! We’ll catch little colour monsters, sniff out special scents in the museum as detectives and explore the animal world in ancient paintings. We also want to find out exciting things about the Middle Ages: How did people write back then? And was all that glitters really gold?

There is plenty of room for questions, small and big ideas – and many an aha!

You can create your own work of art in our KunstGasse. Here you can be creative, paint, craft and design!

We look forward to an exciting year with you!

Duration approx. 45 minutes, admission € 3.50 per person (children up to 12 years free).
