“Schulmuseum” (school museum)
The school museum in Friedrichshafen will bring you back to school. Discover how early schools in this area were introduced and what classrooms looked like around 1850, 1900 and 1930. Old school equipment, such as pencil boxes, school bags and school cones tell a story of the old days. And anyone can try for themselves what it was like to write on an old slate panel with a slate pencil while sitting at a two-seat school desk.
Punishments, such as caning, making children sitting on a wooden donkey or making them kneel on a piece of wood, are dark sides of what used to be common practice in schools, where generations of children were disciplined to become both obedient and hard-working.
Opening hours: April – October: 10 AM – 5 PM daily
