How to find us

By car

Autobahn A 96, exit Mindelheim, direction “Stadtmitte” (town centre), then follow the signs to the museums.

For the “Museen im Colleg”, there is parking space directly in front of the former Jesuit College building or in Georgenstraße. The Tower Clock Museum is located in the town centre, where parking is difficult. For these museums, it is therefore best to park at the Forum or in the underground car park located in Frundsbergstraße.

By train:

Hourly connections from Munich, Augsburg or Lindau, Ulm, Memmingen to Mindelheim. Exit at Mindelheim station, from which it is approx. 1 km walk along Bahnhofstraße and through the picturesque town centre. It is also possible to order the “Flexibus” to take you from the station to the museum. Please contact the museum administration for more information
