  • We were with our grandchild, 7 years old, there. Museum own to children to explain lived wonderfully to like people. The exhibitions are explained in detail and lovingly together worn. There are many hands-on activities. The prices in the local restaurant "zum Adler" are fair, the food delicious and the service very friendly. All in all: a completely successful trip!

  • It was a day without remorse today somewhat rainy, nevertheless. Immerse yourself in the world of the ancestors. Many activities for children. Interesting design exhibitions. Super preserved timber-frame building. Beautiful surroundings and many walking paths. There are also a few animals you might also like to be more. Playground in sufficient quantity to compensate for the infants. One has the impression that the staff likes their job making. Tasty Baker - be sure the bread take. Also return for the maker and to buy. Is an austerbendes craft. Carpenter reminds me of my teaching. Korbflaechter, Super! The Park very well liked our granddaughter. Everywhere there is something interesting to discover. Only the little legs work much too quickly, even though she could not see yet soooo much. Next time but again... 18, 00eur for the family - worth every penny. OUR RECOMMENDATION!

  • The Park is a reconstruction made with the houses of the region which shows how they lived years ago. It is very pleasant to stroll through the streets while you can enter houses and see how they were by Center. There is also a church, synagogue, mill. The buildings and the place where you have installed them is very nice.

  • Nice on a sunny Sunday. Good for a walk as well as nice for kids. There is a market with some foods (although not much choice for vegans) and a lovely bakery.
  • This is the place if you wish to have experiences the 18th-19th centuries life styles and villages in Germany. Half-timbered buildings, mill for beer-brewing, farm houses with livestock, landscaping parks demonstrations. I got some fun having an round tour. Make sure wearing the right shoes! I think the local duck meal I ordered for lunch was delicious.
  • Cool window into the past! Very informative and interesting. There is a lot of displays and you can go into nearly every building. Great for a day trip.
  • Amazing place showing crafts and habits from all parts of Hessen. Great museums with different content so you never get bored. You will need a whole day to get the full experience of Freilichtmuseum.
  • Spent several hours with two kids and seemed to need more. I'll definitely return as it's a live museum of high standards. Highly recommended for tourists as well.
