Guided Tours and Programs

In our numerous courses, workshops and projects, museum visitors can immerse themselves in the daily life of Rhinelanders in the past and today, can experience how they lived and worked, get to know household techniques, crafts and trades, or explore nature.

The wide program offers activities for all age groups; from audio-guide tours, through guided tours through the grounds, holiday specials, workshops and courses for adults and children, organized birthday events and a children’s guide to the museum. With special programs for schools, classes can find out, in a few hours or in a whole week, what the daily life of men and women in the Rhineland used to look like. We can offer guided tours through the grounds and exhibitions in four different languages.

The Forest Learning Centre Eifel (WPZ) invites visitors to experience the forest with a diverse program, from the forest kindergarden through forest learning projects to team training for adults.

Barrier-free Access

The Open Air Museum is situated on a hilltop and therefore includes gradients of up to 17 % in some places. The footpaths are largely made of cobblestones, as well as water-bound surfaces. Between the individual Groups of Buildings there are benches in the grounds, as well as picnic areas with tables. … more about barrier-free access
