Burg Wissem and the Bilderbuch Museum

All throughout elementary school I enjoyed exploring my school library and taking stacks of illustrated books home to read. I can still remember a few favorites from my own collection - they are treasures I have kept and even remember the words to. 

When I found out there was a picture book museum in the nearby village of Troisdorf, I was curious to see what they had there, and even more interested in visiting when I found out the museum was located inside of a castle.

Inside of this little Burg are collections of old and new illustrated books, along with original artwork from one of Germany's best-known children's book authors - Janosch.
