  • One is in Bad Windsheim or environment, you can't get around to visiting the Franconian open-air museum. And it pays off in any case. The tour of a river landscape is already nice, houses and exhibits are engaged built or equipped and very worth seeing. You can very well imagine life at that time. Of course, not all houses are equally good, but everywhere you've been given trouble. Half a day you can spend well here. The restaurant is in the Middle but not the hit. Some chaotic service and average food. But overall: a very rewarding trip.

  • Most children will experience the Franconian open-air museum in Bad Windsheim during a school camp stay at Castle Hoheneck. Here you will discover much about the Frankish culture and rural life as it was earlier. There is much to marvel at and try it out. Especially the large mill is very impressive.

  • In the wild even run allowing and even "educate themselves" a wonderful combination on an inhospitable rainy March day. For the children the animals in the stable are always an event, particularly the young pigs of wool. Absolutely and always recommended...

  • 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.
