Walkaround

Experience the Black Forest with all your senses!

Culture and history come to life in our open air museum. Find out how people have lived and worked in Black Forest farmhouses over the last 400 years.

Visit six fully-furnished farm houses

Each farm house represents the architecture and economic situation of its area of origin – giving you the opportunity to explore nearly the whole Black Forest. Experience how kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms were once equipped and discover the day-to-day life of their inhabitants.

The mill goes clickety-clack on the whirring brook

The techniques of the past, like the water-powered mill, will amaze you as much as the numerous adjoining buildings which include the mills, the saw mills, the chapel, the storehouse and a dower house.

Colourful farm gardens...

Throughout the seasons, you can observe the display fields with their historic crops and a herb garden with over 130 medicinal plants.
