  • The open-air museum is a highlight for me and my family for years. A time travel into the past. In der Aisch that flows through the grounds, you can feed the big carp great with stale bread. On the vineyard farm you can Bowl like a hundred years ago. At the Creek after the Museum Brewery's love to drive the children paper boats. In the autumn the apples from the orchards collect and eat right. Just great

  • We go to every 2-3 years in the open-air museum in Bad Windsheim. It's always interesting, the system is very extensive and varied. The locally produced food (smoked sausages, bread and beer) are delicious.

  • I'm from japan. We were able to feel german atmosphere there.
  • Here you can collect many impressions, instructive, it is also and above all very much alive. Lot catering and also always someone who shows craftsmanship. But we were after 3 hours in the heat out, since you would have to invest more days.

  • One of the so far most beautiful open-air museums, I was able to visit. Very widely, of course, with small preserved villages. All can be visited. The people are very nice and it's a pleasure through the Park. The layout of the Park is managed well.

  • My best friend and I are several times a year here, and we always spend a great time. Our dogs are welcome and may be anywhere. Yesterday she was "night at the Museum", which really was a wonderful experience. Only the attitude of the sheep dogs could anything be worked, that really no longer look like 100 years ago. Lovely grounds, good food, and always relaxed Stunden...ein is worth visiting in any case.
