I've been to similar places elsewhere (Skansen in Stockholm springs to mind). First off, you can't fault the price. €7.50 for adults, under 18s free. The transported and rebuilt buildings range from 15th century to 20th, but are mostly 18th. You're not really allowed to...More

We wish we'd planned twice as long here... we were still enjoying ourselves when closing time came! If you've been to other open-air museums, such as Old World Wisconsin, Colonial Williamsburg, or Hessenpark by Frankfurt, you'll have some idea what this is like. It's fascinating...More

I enjoyed my visit to this museum. The houses are well kept, though many are very dark inside so if you can't see well I would be very careful! Part of the museum was cordoned off for renovation unfortunately but the area is huge and...More

Amazing place to visit - especially with children I suspect. The sheer amount of old buildings that have been relocated and therefor preserved here is amazing. Every single one of them has a story to tell and some of those look very familiar from other...More

This is a wonderful place to visit. Houses from the Rhineland have been rebuilt in a fantastic setting, including an indoor Museum. Lots of hands on activities for children especially in the school holidays between July and September. We live close by and never get...More

This place is unique. The Museum has taken actual old houses and brans from the Medieval times from all over Germany, and transported them to this great open Museum, with guided tours, live animals, and amazing trail walks ideal for short hikes. The place is...More

Visiting this outdoor museum is like taking a step back in time. You are visiting a very modern Germany, but this place helps you appreciate how family, farming, and various trades developed over about a 500 year period. I found the place amazing and the...More
