The Historic Vaulted Cellar


The historic vaulted cellar, also called “Bursenkeller”, consists of natural stone and is located in the basement of the oldest university building of the University of Freiburg. It has a long history and served many purposes. Starting as a wine storage room, it later served as a bomb shelter before being declared the University's "party cellar".

Since 2007, it has been a permanent part of the Uniseum and does not only provide another exhibition space for the museum's permanent exhibition, but also impresses Uniseum visitors with its wonderful ambience.
