Accord with Hungary
Within the exhibition special emphasis is laid on the Hungarians who settled in Gerlingen after World War Two. They made a huge contribution to the obvious growth of the village so that in 1958 it was formally designated a town.
Today there are still strong ties between Hungary and the town of Gerlingen which has not only taken over the patronage for those Hungarians who settled in Germany after World War Two but also carefully fosters the twinning with the Hungarian town of Tata. We not only have Hungarian/German national costumes on show in the museum but there are also living rooms that are completely furnished as well as objets d’art and other articles from Hungary that were in everyday use.
