The National Museum is made up of three inter-linked building sections: the ‘Landesverweserhaus’, the old National Museum and the extension built into the rock of the castle which it backs onto. The old buildings clearly dominate the Städtlestrasse, while the new extension is intentionally hidden modestly behind a quarry stone retaining wall. The only indication of its inner function is a multi-level loggia.
