  • The open air museum is a place full of vegetation which is one 15 min from the Centre of the town of Detmold. Note how much that the Museum is closed during the winter.

  • Excellent, great ambience. There is something for everyone to find, whether culinary or craft. I'm looking forward to the next events from Easter

  • We were back to the Christmas market there, all beautifully shining in the houses of historical Weihnachsstuben, wonderful. But even in the summer, we were more often here! Always there is something new to discover.
