Kaiser Wilhelm II transformed the old medieval banquet hall of Haut-Koenigsbourg castle into a weapons museum. The room displays a whole collection of Morgensterns, halberds, crossbows, and swords. Blades from the end of the Middle Ages stand alongside coats of arms. The museum also has armors illustrating how medieval knights fought.
