“An unusual and interesting attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

A great place to take young children. It feels like a step back in time and the children were more active than they have been in some other museums.

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We visited the musem not sure if the kids will endour the tour. The tour starts with a short movie - since we were the only non German speaking visitors we joined the German tour, which was not convenient for my husband, who does not speak german at all. Later on we joined the tour (again only in German). You can wander around the place on your own (it is very interesting without the guide), but the guide has keys to some huts that are not accessible otherwise. One of the highlights of the museum was the "playground" where everyone can dig for remains in sand, try to drill a hole in a stone without modern tools etc...

“Unesco World Heritage on Bodensee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This place is stunning.

A recreation of a Bronze Age settlement built on stilts out into the water of Bodensee. Although largely a reconstruction, it is built on the original site of the settlement.

It was originally begun in 1922 and now attracts tourists from all over the world. It is very busy but well worth it as you can explore the whole of the settlement at your leisure and it also has stunning views of Bodensee.

A must-see visit if you are near Bodensee.

“Stone and Bronze age village on the lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

We arrived just as a German language tour was starting. The ticket seller recommended that we join it because two buildings can only be visited by tour. We were able to understand most of the lecture in the first building since there were a lot of visual aids and we understand German better than we speak it. In the second building, it was much harder to understand since there were few visuals. We left and explored the rest on our own. There are some English explanations, bur they could use more.

They request that you not take photos for some incomprehensible reason and that is one of the reasons for my less than excellent rating. While the museum is interesting, there is not enough to warrant a second visit.

We arrived by bus #7395 which goes along the north coast of the Bodensee.
