Way past half-timbered houses with cobblestones

Group of buildings

In the grounds, an area of 110 hectares, you will currently find 79 historical buildings from the former Prussian RheinProvinz. Farmsteads, wind- and watermills, workshops, communal buildings, like the school- and bake-house, the dance-hall and chapel, stand as examples of the dwellings, buildings and commercial life of the rural population since the end of the 15th century. The heritage buildings are embedded in a museum landscape with arable fields, cottage gardens and orchards.
