Questions and answers

The history of the Hospital in the Rock holds numerous interesting questions – we cover the most important information in our guided tours. The location, the sight and the stories told often encourage our visitors to think further.

Now we want to satisfy this thirst for knowledge – we brought you the answers to the most frequently asked questions. Of course, the simple “What is this?” is also a reoccurring question in our museum, so now we display our most popular, difficult-to-identify artefacts.
