Radebeul Travel Tip:
Karl May Museum
Karl May's house
Villa Shatterhandin Radebeul now housing the musuem
For generations Karl May (1842-1912) has ranked high as one of the best loved and most widely read German writers. His tales of adventures set in the American West and in the Ottoman Empire total well over 100 million copies in German and dozens of more millions in translations. The Karl-May-Museum opened in 1928 and has since attracted more than seven million visitors from all over the world. Today the museum presents two permanent exhibitions: a collection of American Indian art and artefacts unique in Europe, and and the life and work of May, including historically restored original furnishings from May’s study, personal library and reception room, reflecting the aura of pre-world-war-times.
Hours: March thru October: Tuesday to Sunday 9 am – 6 pm, Nov thru Feb: Tuesday to Sunday 10 am – 4 pm.
Admission: Adults 7 €, Concessions 5 €, Children 3 €.
