The purpose of the permanent exhibitions is to present literature in an aesthetic atmosphere with more than just glass exhibit cases. In addition to the permanent exhibitions, countless temporary exhibitions are featured regularly. These are supplemented by a comprehensive library with over 6,000 volumes of literature from the Upper Rhine region, as well as the Scheffel Archives, a collection passed down by Joseph Victor von Scheffel.
