I wouldn't have known about this place if not for a friend's local knowledge. It is spread out over quite a large area with buildings from different phases of German history. You can walk into most of them, but very rarely can go upstairs. There...More

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

Made the past really interesting, and covered so many eras. Lots of car parking, lots of eating and drinking opportunities

This park shows the life of the ordinary German though out the time. This is a museum not an entertainment park. So there is load of information on the buildings. With displays on the customs and habits of the different regions. Because we visited in...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
