  • 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.
