Seeing the crowd in the museum we were afraid that we won't be able to fully enjoy our visit, but finally it wasn't that bad. As it is not necessary to keep direction, you can freely choose which way to go, come back, if you...More

We enjoyed the information presented even though we don’t speak German. The German tour was over our heads, but the museum is a stunning recreation of the stilt homes discovered on the lake from an early civilization. The displays need no explanation. It is beautifully...More

You don't have to book in advance. You can just come and wait for next tour. At the time we visited they started about every half an hour, if I remember well. We decided not to wait as there is a lot of information panels... More
