I visited with my 2 cousins and we had a small family reunion in a coffee place close. THen we visited the museum and it was very very interesting. A shame I forgot my camera because as you can see you can take quite some lovely pictures!

Our whole family of ten members all enjoyed a day out here.
We visited on one of the hottest days of the year and the kids and us adults were so hot, but we cooled down with refreshments at the cafe and in the old, dark houses and buildings. Very interesting to find out the traditions of the old Black Forest. We dragged our kids around in a pull along cart which was great to save their tired legs on such a hot day.
Thoroughly enjoyable was the day... and the huge slice of the delicious schwarzwälder kirschtorte (Black Forest Gâteaux)

An amazing folk museum which is well laid out, easy to follow and provides lots of historical information.
We had a wonderful day exploring all the old buildings which have been moved from other locations near to Gutach, and found them all very interesting. It was fascinating to see how they designed and built the farmhouses and storerooms etc with the weather and prevailing conditions in mind. Some of the buildings dated back to the 1500s, and were in remarkably good condition given that they are mostly constructed of wood.
There were explanations as to how they made their locks, why one particular type of building was made of wood but then surrounded on all four sides by a rock structure which stood about 4-5 feet away from the wooden walls (reason was to keep it much warmer in winter, and also to make it easy for them to store their goods and feed their animals without going out into the weather).

The Black Forest Open Air Museum was the highlights of our visit to the Black Forest. There is a lot to see and lots of interesting information (in English as well) and exhibits in the farmhouses. One of the best parts was a small workshop where handmade crafts are sold. They could personalise the crafts on the spot for you. This is a great place to buy unique gifts. There is a train station right outside the museum entrance with hourly trains. The Sommerrodelbahn Gutach, about a 10 min walk down the road is also well worth a visit.

this open air museum is full of old farmhouses that were common in the black forest. go with a guide and you will get a lot more out of it. this would be a great family activity. learn how farmers and their families lived centuries ago. i was entertained.
