  • Unique approach to Swiss historical living. A good full day or just a couple of hours. You'll never see it all in one visit. Plan to walk a lot. Well worth your time.

  • All the Swissness at one place! Bike around the lake from Interlaken to enjoy truly marvelous views and arrive at this large open air museum to wander the region-specific Barnes and taste some locally produced food. A great place to spend a day in a nice weather!

  • I had a lovely day here. There is a big car park but there are also bus stations on west and east. The entrance is on the west side. There's a lot to see and do here and you can get around either by foot or by horse and cart if you are lucky enough to find one. I definitely recommend making this a day out as it is quite vast and varied in regional buildings.

  • Wow. Could have spent a whole day here, easily. Real houses and farms relocated from areas around Switzerland, furnished with period pieces. Had various demonstrations of local traditions. Lots of walking, so wear comfortable shoes.

  • Fantastic place, very pretty with lots of historical and interesting houses to see. The demonstrations are amazing and very informative
