Museum für Vodoo

Museum of voodoo and healing

Europe’s first and only museum of voodoo and healing aims to give the visitor a feeling of calmness and offer an opportunity to escape from stress and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This is the right place to come if you want to experience West Africa with all your senses. Well over 1,000 exhibits provide an insight into the complex world of the gods. A large "Mami-Wata altar" in honour of the goddess of water is placed in the centre of the museum. The subjects of healing and magic are another focal point. You can marvel at the many figures and objects loaded with "positive" energy. However, viewing is by appointment only. Please call to arrange an appointment.
