Germany Off The Beaten Path: 479 reviews and 733 photos
The Unterudkldingen Lake Dwellings Open Air Museum is one of the oldest outdoor museums in Europe. It sits on the shores of the Bodensee near Meersburg, both of which I visited on a daytrip from Lindau.
The museum is a recreation of Stone Age and Bronze Age village that was at one time located at this location. The settlement was largely built on stilts over the waters of the Bodensee. There are very good tours of the dwellings themselves where the tour guides give excellent demonstrations of Stone Age tools. Unfortunately all of this was done in German but non-German speakers should be able to get the idea of what is going on. It was a beautiful morning during my visit and the whole place was very picturesque. The museum is very popular even though I doubt many foriegn tourist have ever heard of it. Line ups for the tour can be long.
The museum is 5.50 Euros for adults.
