Museum building

The Upper Palatinate Fisheries Museum was located in the district town of Tirschenreuth and is now part of the Tirschenreuth MuseumsQuartier as the specialist fishery department. Since fish farming has a long tradition in and around Tirschenreuth , it was opened in 1982 under the name of the First Bavarian Museum for Fishing and Pond Management in the rooms of the former women's monastery. Since 1993 it has been located as the Upper Palatinate Fishing Museum in a building on Regensburger Strasse.

On three floors, the department provides an overview of the long tradition and the entire spectrum of fish farming in the Upper Palatinate. A walk through the exhibition rooms becomes a journey through the history of fishing, from river fishing to pond farming and fishing . The museum is divided into areas such as pond construction and carp farming , fishing and recycling, pond management and nature.

In addition to the information on numerous display boards and three-dimensional representations, there are many historical showpieces and aids as well as preparations of fish and water birds to see. Old equipment such as wooden cashers and tools for knitting nets as well as equipment for pond landings and pond construction are on display.

Native water landscapes are reproduced in several large aquariums and allow visitors to see life underwater up close.
