Neuhausen ob Eck Open-Air Museum

Freilichtmuseum Neuhausen ob EckExperience rural history

The museum village in the south-western „corner“ of the Swabian Alb presents the rural history of the south-western Alb. More than 20 buildings rebuilt in the manner of the original provide an insight into the harsh living conditions of our ancestors from the Alb over the last centuries. The focus of the museum is an „Alb village“ with church, school building and town hall, blacksmiths, farms, village pond (the so-called „Hülbe“) and much more.

The offspring of old domestic animal breeds can be seen in the stalls and on the pastures. And every day at 2 p.m. the swineherd lets the pigs loose. A swineherd leads the pigs to the „historical swine pasture“ just like they used to do 200 years ago. The Neuhausen Museum Village is particularly successful in staging a lot of events and interactive programmes for both families and school classes which enable visitors to experience and „understand“ rural history at first hand..
