Gallery of Coats of Arms of countries, cities and municipalities



The present collection of coats of arms is a complete documentation of municipal heraldry in Germany and sees itself as a state-political educational object with over 3600 hand-carved and hand-painted coats of arms of German federal states, districts, cities and municipalities.


This highly decorative coat of arms show, unique in the world, is the life's work of initiator, founder and sculptor Hans-Dietrich Riemann (†) from Berchtesgaden.


The coat of arms collection, once managed by the non-profit association “Deutsches-Wappen-Musem e. V. ”founded in 1971, currently privately owned, served as the most extensive archive of its kind.


The coats of arms tell stories from history. The museum served to cultivate historical awareness and at the same time represents a colorful picture book of German history.


The coat of arms collection is so extensive that over 400 square meters of wall space can be hung with German city and community coats of arms and can thus be integrated in its entire size or in parts into any cultural and architectural framework program (art in architecture).


The coat of arms collection is a challenge for every enthusiast. The collection in its entirety leaves a lasting impression.


The coat of arms carving is continued today by the agency Qseven media GmbH.


Here you can only see a small selection from over 3500 hand-carved and hand-painted city and municipality coats of arms.


The size of the individual pieces is approx. 22.0 cm x 28.0 cm x 2.5 cm
