This is a self-guided open air museum, showing how people in Münsterland lived a few hundred years ago. There are many old buildings and farm equipment.

Small museum premises for if you want to know more about the former German countryside, its peasants and craftsmen. With vulonteers baking bread, tinsmiths and beekeepers. A nice stop cycling around Lake Aasee.

Lovely little 'village' that you walk around and can peer into or walk around houses, blacksmiths, school, bakers, bee-keeper, a windmill, veggie gardens. Very traditional. Not much info about things and it would be better if guided (we just walked around). But on a nice...More
