It was interesting to see the way people lived in this area in the past. There were many activities for families and children, including the opportunity to make toys like those used in the past.

We spent about half a day in the museum park itself. However, it is truly worth it, especially if you the the time to talk to the people at the exhibits they are very knowledgable and have many stories to tell.

Day 2 will not work - this is far too much for one day.Vogtsbauernhof and Triberg are enough to fill a day imho. Including Feldberg will definitely not work.

Then stop for some hours in Freiburg on day 3 (Freiburg central station has luggage lockers). Titisee is a tourist trap. You are not missing much...More
