satellite stations from the exhibition

There are two more parts of the exhibition on the grounds of the Petersberg Citadel.

War-powder magazine

In War Powder Magazine III, the administrator of the powder depot gives an insight into his world and teaches the basic rules of storing the black powder. But beware: the alcohol and the loneliness in the dark vault seem to have confused his senses a little. Is handling an open fire in a powder depot really a good idea?

Gun battery

In the trench caponniere in the fortress trench, you can be initiated into the knowledge of the fortress builders and immediately put your newly acquired knowledge into practice: You can try out the function and effect of guns and projectiles for yourself at the large cannon.
