  • 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.

  • Very nice outdoor museum with many interesting buildings. Staff dressed in local attire makes it even more interesting. Located in a very nice valley.
  • Very interesting outdoor museum with real farm houses from all over the Black Forest. Some homes are working farms with horses, cattle, goats, etc. We learned a lot about life and survival in the Black Forest and some houses have smaller, specialized museums on forestry, crafts, religion etc. While everything is written in English, I recommend the audio guide because it gives you more detailed and specialized information. Good for kids, teens, and adults. Lots of narrow stairs to climb and the outdoor paths are gravel.
  • It is a nice and interesting place that gives you a good insight in culture and history. It shows you how people have lived and worked in Black Forest farmhouses over the last 400 years. Daily handicraft demonstrations. Plan much time half a day minimum.The buildings are described in German, French and English. There is a nice picnic and playground area with a kiosk and a restaurant with beergarden. Free guided tours in English: In July and in August daily at 1:00 pm.
  • I loved this. Instead of little version of houses in the region this museum has full size buildings moved from all over the region. You really get to touch and walk through and learn the history of the buildings.
  • Very rich in farming history. Good place to visit and learn the German farming history in the black forest. Restaurants and parking lot available. Guided tour available
