The forest museum is located in the middle of the Heiligenhauser paradise - in the listed building of the former waterworks of the city.

Interested parties are informed here about how sensibly water and waste water can be used. Other subject areas include the history of drinking water supply, presenting current water supply in a way that can be experienced and illustrated, and of course pointing out environmental protection, sustainability and climate change

The forest museum is embedded in the existing Abtsküche museum landscape with the UBZ, the fire brigade museum and the local history collection in the Abtsküche museum.
