  • A nice open air museum for a relaxed day out. It is situated on a hill (last piece in quite a climb, but if necessary you can opt for a welcoming shuttle bus). Once on site, you experience peace and you see a lot about living and life during the first half of the last century. Worth it!

  • This open air museum we found well and worth the entrance fee. The museum offers a nice overview of various old buildings of the region and gives information about everyday life from older times. At many buildings, you can look inside, but we did have a little more in the buildings may look (many closed). For the children there was a playground and there are on different places to see farm animals. Our children have been well entertained. We have delicious cake eaten at the "Gastwirtschaft zur Post" and tasty sandwiches and bread purchased at one of the shops. This is in one of the historic buildings. The staff where we had to deal with was very friendly. The museum is spacious and in different places are facilities such as dining facilities and toilets. Although we have no experience with it seems the grounds easily accessible for the disabled, the website gives good information. The historical buildings are generally less accessible. The climb from the car park to the entrance is steep.

  • Wonderful place. I went with certain reticence thinking of finding a cheap attraction, a showcase of plastic for tourists. I was wrong. It is a large park in the middle of a beautiful natural setting where Palapas what life was like in the German camp in the 17TH, 18th and 19th centuries. You can visit Royal houses and see the furniture of the time, the different rooms, beds, kitchen accessories, irregular and opaque glass from its windows. There are several homes, a grain mill, a sawmill powered by water from the river and 2 windmills. All of this takes you back to the past, to a way of life that is no more (for good or evil, that decides it you) within the complex there are at least 2 restaurants and a souvenir shop. You have to walk quite but justifies it. If you are in the area go to visit him.

  • A place to spend the entire day with the family. It may not make sense if you a very small child who cannot understand history. Houses from various parts of Germany ha e been reassembled here. Additionally, museum workers play the role of people living in those times. At €7.50/adult it is expensive if you are not interested in history and German culture. A small zoo with pet animals completes the round up of items on offer.
  • LVR-Freilichtmuseum Kommern is one of the biggest outdoor museums in Europe with lots of animals, beautiful landscapes and a total of sixty-seven historic buildings. The site represents rural life in Germany since the fifteenth century in a very authentic and informative way. It's both interesting for adults and children. If you visit Western Germany, you shouldn't miss out on this unique museum. You can spend an entire day there without ever getting bored.
  • Nice for everyone interested in our local history. How houses were built and how families lived centuries ago in this region.
  • Great outdoor museum with animals, restaurants, and sights for different ages. Allocate at least two hours for the visit.
  • Lots of interesting farm buildings in lovely parkland. Some thought provoking exhibits. Helpful staff.
