We wanted to visit these Bronze-Age houses as my daughter had been studying this period of history at school and we weren't disappointed. The houses were reconstructed in 1922 from artefacts found in the lake and there is a whole village network on stilts! There are clear explanations of what each building was used for and the traditions of the... More

This museum had a multimedia presentation and then a tour of Lake Dwelling structures that were very interesting. There were hands on activities and displays in several of the dwellings. It was a nice place to walk around and explore. Very interactive, informative and unique. There were close by places to eat as well.

Find out what was going on 6000 years ago. They really have put some work into this place. Patient guide tells a great story. Lots to see even on crummy out of season day. In winter only open 2.30 sharp for hour - you could be only one there! Great info.

Was on an excursion with a language school based in Freiburg, and we all went to this museum. It was a really cool immersive experience. First they have you go through this like 4D experience, then you can enter the open air museum, where you are free to roam. There weren't "guides" per say, rather people stationed at particular points... More

What a wonderful little gem to stop and see. I was on a bike trip around Lake Constance and stopped by this place based on a recommendation from a friend. How very interesting. Great for young and old alike.

A good reconstruction to show how people lived in ages past. Definitely worth a visit, especially with children, an instructional paradise.

A very good reconstruction of stone age & bronze age buildings. Recommend taking the tour and seeing the short movie. You might be able to skip this but we found it interesting especially the movie with the "special effects". There are lots of signs with explanations - German & English. There was one house with a young man doing a... More

It's a unique fisherman village reconstruction that I was truly not expecting to find. Very cool effect when the doors open to the outside area.
