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 great for children and adults alike. Interesting and old fashioned fun. A couple of minor... 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 Germans around me seemed as engaged as we were. Even though I don't speak much... More

We visited this attraction last summer on a beautiful day which was perfect for all the walking that we did. There are many buildings to visit and we enjoyed lunch there as well (soup, bread and later coffee and cake) which was very delicious.

The set up of the homes was also nice, though did start to look all the same after a while (the homes are from different locations in the Rheinland area). There are short descriptions of the building in... More

I have visited open air folk museums in Scandinavia and of course we have our own Welsh National Folk open air museum in Cardiff. This open air museum compares well with them but on a smaller scale. The museum covers an area of a few miles and there are examples of buildings from various districts of the Rheinland grouped as... More

It is quit a climb from the parking to the museum, with its 95 ha, one of the largest open-air museums in Europe. 65 Buildings from the Rhineland: residential buildings, farmyards, windmills, workshops, village community buildings (tante Emma laden, school and bakery, dance hall and a chapel). Most of the buildings were reconstructed in their 'original' condition after being moved.... More
