This is NOT Colonial Williamsburg, Sturbridge Village, or Plymouth Plantation. This collection represents the buildings of the poorer people in Bavaria. There are few presentations.

If you have time in the area, don't miss this beautiful open air museum. A lot of old things to discover and in between you find people preparing traditional dishes or local products

This was absolutely the largest Museumsdorf I have ever visited in Europe. The collection and restoration work is totally out of this world. There are some 134 historical buildings of all kinds from the 1500's - 1800's, and a walk thru the village is a...More
