  • This Christmas market with the local customs is one of the most beautiful Christmas markets I've ever seen. Can this man is really stay, meet customs and is served in a cosy atmosphere. Without any hassle, this small, defined Christmas market is worth an d to recommend a trip to anyone. There are plenty of parking spaces available. We come back.

  • It is located on the B33 between Hausach and Gutach road, occupying approximately 5.5 interesting HA for young and old, shows the cultural heritage of the region and makes it accessible. His beginnings were by 1963, and remains active until this year. So, 6 furnished typical farms in the area; you can experience in the exhibition hall, typical products of the time, as clocks, hand-made fabrics, etc. Near farms there are warehouses, mills, saws, Chapel, monuments. Along with them, are pets. At the reception we can see a restaurant, the Museum Shop, a space for school children, rooms for temporary exhibitions, etc. Everything has a comprehensive program. craft demonstrations, guided tours, folk dances, etc. During the seven-month season that the Museum is open, it receives about 230000 visitors. I consider it a must-see place, especially for families with children.

  • I know this place for almost 40 years now and having visited it recently and seeing how it is constantly being adjusted to suit the masses and time, is very impressive. The museum "pieces" are kept in great condition while adding new approaches and modern techniques to entertain and educate the visitors. You can bring your own food, but food options have also improved with time:there's a restaurant, a few snack stations and even outside the premises you will find good options. You can spend the entire day here, letting kids run around, join presentations or activities, or just dive into the past of the Black Forest people. There are also animals like horses, cows, sheep, geese, goats and lots more to watch how they were kept back in the day.
  • A fascinating and well-maintained museum with numerous exhibits and detailed descriptions. We spent several hours here and could have spent many more. The buildings themselves are amazing, and the level of care taken in their authentic furnishing shows. I understand that in the summer they even have reenactments of the lives and industries of the people who lived in these houses. From the pictures I saw online I was a bit worried that this museum would be too geared towards children, but I was totally wrong. I experienced constant wonder.
  • very good history cultural museum It is an open air museum of old civilisations in black forest area. The displays here are well illustrative, interactive and very much appealing for kids. The museum is better arrived by car than public transport. There is bus connection to nearest train station but frequency is very low.
  • A very good display of what the way of life in the black forest was over the centuries. Buildings are amazing, signs in German, English, and some in French. I was able to learn a lot.
  • A fun and very interesting dive into the history of agriculture and how people lived long ago in the Black Forest region.
