The museum’s Print Room is exhibiting two extraordinary series of coloured woodcuts from the German renaissance.

The collection of prints is part of a recovered treasure that was missing for fifty years. One series shows Swiss and German mercenaries in colourful clothing. The other series is of great cultural-historical value and shows Turkish soldiers on horses and camels.
