Town and weighing scale museum, Oschatz

The Oschatz town and weighing scale museum is located in the historic Rats- and Amtsfronfeste buildings adjoining the wall of the old town, which is still well-preserved today. The town’s history is brought vividly to life in the lovingly restored complex. The exhibition of weighing scales, which is unique in central Germany, comprises more than 100 specimens, visually documenting the development of scales from their earliest beginnings to the most modern electronic weighing equipment. Of course, visitors can also investigate their own “weightiness” here. The Zwingergarten is a great place to spend time relaxing. Walking up the town’s watchtower, built in 1377, is a truly extraordinary experience.
