This was a very nice museum. Loved the little shops and that cute backerei!! I had the choice to explore on my own or go with the tour guide. I wish I would have explored on my own-I would have been able to see more of the museum. They have the biggest smelliest hogs/pigs ever!! It was too funny. Recommend this tour without tour guide!!

This was a good way to see just what life was like back 100 or so years ago. I think families with school aged children would enjoy this.

What a neat place! We happened upon this place driving through Germany in our rental car. This is a museum of how people lived in the Black Forest in "the old days." This is an open air museum called Vogtsbauernhof. There are six fully furnished farm houses, the day laborer's cottage and 15 outbuildings - mills, stalls, sawmills, barns, chapel, storehouses and what they call a "granny house." There are self guided audio tours as well as tours daily at 2:30 p.m. There are also craftsmen demonstrations and family workshops where you can make cuckoo pipes and baskets. There is also a gift shop and restaurant on site. The museum really opened our eyes on how living really was in "those days" Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. until August when closing time is 7 p.m. Paid parking. For more information, go to vogtsbauernhof.org. What a great side trip!

When you enter the market area (which is free) we were pleasantly surprised. The architecture was beautifully presented. The brush shop was an eye-opener, a brush for every job! Upstairs in the chemist shop, were two floors of electrical museum pieces, to bring joy to the heart of every geek! The other shops were lovely, containing things like typical German national dress to buy, gifts, bread, herbs, and loads of other things. We did not oay to go into the museum part of the Hessenpark, as we had spent two hours there already enjoying the sights! We would recommend it very much, and it would be even more enjoyable on a warm summers day, instead of minus two.... ! Something for all ages.

A very thoughtful collection of original Hessian houses, farmhouses, churches and former shops and craftsman workshops. Interior exhibits explain life in the 19th century as well and are very nicely developed. A market place is a very nice introduction to the park itself. There are several dozen houses finished and plenty more waiting for reconstruction. The exhibit is a nice way to take you back to the 19th century life in Hesse.
There are also nature walks available, explaining rock formations, trees and flora at large.
