This special exhibit is among the most interesting in Europe. The work of three generations of the La Roche family comprises of objects of hunting from baronial trophy rooms as well as from inconspicuous cellars and storage spaces.

Around 600 hunting accessories from the 15th to the 19th centuries are available in the showrooms for viewing.
Long rows of hand weapons, silent long-range weapons, fire arms, hunting knives and jaw traps show, along with the hand craftsmanship, the development of hunting technique.
