    Kappenmuehle

    Favorite thing: You will come across all kinds of different farm/rural buildings. There are three windmills here, this one is called "Kappenwindmuehle" and is situated near the restaurant.

  • Inside the houses

    Favorite thing: Inside the little country houses, visitors can see "how they used to live" - as everything has been carefully reconstructed, whether it was a lowly farmworker's dwelling or a rich manor house.

    I found the little cupboard beds complete with fluffy duvets fascinating - there was no way they could ever lay out straight in their beds.. they were just too small... but as they were only cupboards they were very convenient space savers in those tiny cottages.
    Many of the farm cottages were actually attached to stables or stalls for pigs/cattle etc which meant the animals could be attended to without the farmer and his wife having to go outside in bad weather.

    Of course the buildings have been reconstructed exactly as they were which meant there was no lighting, and that made it difficult to take pictures in some places.

    Bakery

    Favorite thing: This tiny timberframed building was in fact a bakery, selling a variety of "country" loaves for a couple of Euro each. All were made on the premises in their own oven (you can see it at the back of the building). The smell was divine!

    Favorite thing: Being a rural museum there are of course lots of wagons and wagons need horses! The horses here are all black and all very friendly. Most of them had foals, like this lovely chap.
