This is NOT Colonial Williamsburg, Sturbridge Village, or Plymouth Plantation. This collection represents the buildings of the poorer people in Bavaria. There are few presentations. There are few signs. The layout seems haphazard. But, the preserved buildings and objects represent a tremendous value to those who seek to hold on to Bavarian heritage before it vanishes to the world of... More

This village museum is not an actual village, but a reconstruction utilizing buildings - homes, barns, chapels, school buildings, etc... The founder of the Rotel company, which has a hotel and tour buses, wanted to preserve these buildings. A visit here would be fun for kids. It's interesting for adults, but if we hadn't come with the expectation that there... More

We visited this museum that used to be a village. We got to see firsthand how industrious people were back then. It was very interesting. My wife is not big on museums. But she enjoyed this one. So you know it's good! When we got off the bus, our tour guide did an old German folk dance with one of... More

We opted for this tour due to ship swap from low water. We had a 30 minute drive from Passau and had a nice open air museum providing the weather is good. There are about 100 structures dating as far back as 400+ years that have been moved to this area. Our ship provided a tour guide which helps as... More

My wife and I spent delightful hours walking this open air museum. The quality of the architecture, and its placement in the landscape, is exceptional. This is a labor of love of the wealthy founder of Rotel, a thriving rolling hotel business that has taken Germans traveling all over the world. Here he celebrates his origins, and makes a gift...

If you have time in the area, don't miss this beautiful open air museum. A lot of old things to discover and in between you find people preparing traditional dishes or local products

Our tour of the open air museum was an alternate half-day tour which was offered to us by our river cruise company as a result of low water levels on the river. The museum is preserving wooden Bavarian Forest buildings from as far back as 1580. They were moved there by a business man who did not want this Bavarian... More

We visited the open air museum as part of a river cruise off-boat excursion. The day was a beautiful Bavarian spring morning with a "Bavarian Sky"; blue with white puffy clouds. While not familiar with the area, I had the feeling that road access was simple with the museum only a few miles off main roads. There were large parking... More

This was absolutely the largest Museumsdorf I have ever visited in Europe. The collection and restoration work is totally out of this world. There are some 134 historical buildings of all kinds from the 1500's - 1800's, and a walk thru the village is a trip into the past. Take the kids, they will learn a lot about history, how... More
