Ballenberg Open-Air Museum, Brienz Reviews

  • 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.

  • A really big and beautiful museum of authentic historical houses, mills, and barns that were brought to the museum and meticulously restored and reconstructed back into working order and often with beautiful gardens surrounding them. The museum is quite large and divided up into sections with typical houses from almost all regions of Switzerland. Be prepared to walk a bit, and bring something to grill at one of the several picnic fire pits. You will probably want to spend the whole day there, there's a lot to see.

  • This is a great opportunity to see all the regional variations of Switzerland in one place. The quality and care taken for the buildings is great, and each section of the park feels like a real farm or town, nothing feels out of place. The park is huge, and you could easily spend 2 days here. We especially enjoyed and were surprised by the example of silk industry with the large farm house from Ticino.

  • Great place to visit but do big you would need 2 or 3 days to do it justice. Reasonable price and exhibits will presented with a good amount of info to read. But not too much either.

  • I still love Ballenberg. Good for a walk, good for learning new things and seeing how hard our ancestors worked to survive. The restaurant is good, the new takeaway is reasonable and the home made food in the shop generally excellent.
