The exhibition called Weihrauch und Pulverdampf (Incense and gun-smoke) is devoted to the former monastery and the times when Freiburg was besieged in the 17th and 18th century by Swedish and French troops. The Dominican monastery within and close to the city walls was located near an important access gate called Predigertor (preacher's gate). The monastery became famous when from 1236 to 1238 the great Albertus Magnus held the position of Lesemeister (reading master).
