Bergheimat Museum (Bergheim City Museum)
The historical "Bergheimat" museum at the former Druckerei Doepgen printworks was opened in May 2012 and is right in the heart of the Bergheim pedestrian zone. Here, the history of Bergheim is vividly enacted and brought to life, both to inform people and encourage them to get involved according to the motto: a visit to the museum should be fun. A small, permanent exhibition deals with the defining phases in the city’s history. Events, lectures and activities complete the offering, appealing to a wide range of age and interest groups. Thus, the BERGHEIMAT is a place where “there is always something happening” – a return visit is definitely worthwhile.
Special exhibitions that change every two years ensure ever new topics and facets. "Burgen, Schlösser, Rittersleut im Altkreis Bergheim" (Fortresses, Castles and Knight Folk in Old Bergheim) is currently on show.
