Picture book museum Burg Wissem, Troisdorf

An idyllic position in grounds with a game reserve and playground are home to Burg Wissem, which houses Europe's most important collection of picture books.

As well as historical literature for children and young people from 1498 to the present day, the exhibition presents a comprehensive collection of original picture book illustrations.

The exhibits on a generous permanent loan from Janoschfilm & medien AG makes the Picture Book Museum Troisdorf the largest Janosch centre in the world. Originals from all the creative periods of the popular artist are shown in alternating compositions.
