A living history museum type of place. As an English language speaker, it is worth it to arrange for a guide to tell more details. There are some eating vendors on the premises.

Very interesting open air museum which gives an idea on how hard country life was in the past. The only complaint is that maybe it would be even better with live vintage costume extras and more animals.

Walk around the reconstructed villages of Northern, Central, Southern Black Forest and discover diverse exhibitions in each house. Feels authentic and is both entertaining and didactic.
