Our library's map collection

The department library holds an extensive collection of (historical) maps purchased for teaching aids back in pre-digital times. The considerable wealth of map material is located in the department at the Hofgarten and can be viewed on site upon request.


In addition to various city maps, the collection consists of topographic and morphological maps. Historical maps of the territories of today's North Rhine-Westphalia as well as the corresponding Rhineland administrative districts and counties form the core of the collection.
