  • Nice and interesting museum where you can discover and learn a bit more about the chinene callgraphy.  more »
  • The Stelenmuseum with the very numerous Chinese writing boards from different eras was brought to our house by our tour guide in an impressive way. Also fascinated were the Kallligraphies with motifs of Chinese landscapes, which were removed from many stone slabs. These original prints can be purchased on site !
