Ballenberg Open-Air Museum, Brienz Reviews
What a great treasure nestled in Switzerland. Fun for everyone with interactive activities, farm animals, and an in depth look at the history of housing and farm buildings in history. I had the opportunity to make my own butter and then eat it. The in site restaurants are also delicious and reasonably priced. Definitely block out a good portion of our day to submerge yourself into the experience.
The Ballenberg Museum is a great excursion with kids. It is open air, with real size replicas of traditional buildings from the Swiss campaign. You walk from a “region” to another, and as such the time you spend there is very scalable: from a few hours to the full day. While we were there, there were many “live” activities: cooking bread, carving animals in wood, an exposition around bees, etc. Also many farm animals to see. There are a few restaurants and shops also available.
absolutely fabulous and majestic. 10-15 min walk from the station and is easily accessible. the area is so wonderful to walk. the neatly articulated huts and the collection of old Swiss lifestyle is superb. they have a restaurant inside. the horse cart ride inside is superb too. there's a nice place to walk just for leisure too. engulf the freshness and heritage and be rejuvenated. we did it the same day as Aare Gorge and the two places simply made our day...can't get better than this.
Not so cheap (24 CHF adult) but worth it. Think that you can see not one but several dozens of museum inside the open-air museum. Be here soon after opening because at least 5-7 hours are needed to see everything and back to car park. We were here at noon on Sunday and the paid car park next to the entrance was full, so an employee recommended parking next to the road in the village for free.
Set in a beautiful, tranquil location, this must see attraction will whisk you back in time. You can wander peacefully around these historic buildings and enjoy strolling through their period interiors. There are lots of artisans demonstrating age old crafts. As you wander the extensive grounds and woodlands you will come across rare breed animals. It's the perfect place to escape the hordes of tour buses. There's plenty of parking at both the West and East Entrances. Ballenberg West is the nearest entrance to Brienz. You can get there easily by Train from Interlaken and then catch the connecting 151 Bus which stops at both Entrances. Allow yourself a whole day as the grounds are spread out over a large area and there are hundreds of Exhibits. You could combine a boat trip to Interlaken at the end of your day.
