  • The Fraenkishes Freilandmuseum provides a unique and fascinating way to explore how life existed in this area of Germany in years past. The collection of old homes, barns and buildings span from medie...  read more »
  • A great open-air museum is laid out on a large surface. You can see houses from different centuries and back in time. One can imagine how the people lived at the time. Beer is brewed in one of the houses, in another grain into flour is ground, in front of a House were steamed potato, apples for juice pressed etc. You can see pets, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, etc. We made with a very interesting guide to houses from the post-war period. I have only questioned how that is, found it but very interesting. It was the one the young man who has declared very clearly everything to another at a certain recognition effect for certain objects, still seen in the own parents or grandparents.

  • A lovingly and carefully put together arrangement of houses from all possible periods (medieval to almost-today) and with a wide variety of benefits (mills, farms, artisan houses etc.). Natural animals and to fields with old varieties on it. There you can withstand it well! The children look more or less in a window to the past and the adults enjoy the beautiful countryside and the numerous Inns. A setting up the public sector, with the everyone is satisfied...

  • I'm from japan. We were able to feel german atmosphere there.
  • 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.

  • Just great: a beautiful, spacious grounds, in which here and some beautiful old houses stand alone or in groups seemingly natural. Just walk through the truly spacious grounds is a pleasure. You just very soothing feel that one has to do it here with a FreiLANDmuseum, not a crowded MuseumsDORF. The way crazy farm roads are not easy in the terrain, but adapt to the natural terrain. Several traditional Austrian restaurants provide sustenance in the exploration. There does not even come from a museum feeling, but you'd think the residents had gone around the corner just out of the House. The houses but not easy facade, but you can see much about the way of life, because many rooms also are the remains of plaster, paint, wallpaper and also partly set up show. In my opinion the Franconian open air museum is the by far most beautiful open-air museum in Germany.
