Ballenberg Open-Air Museum
a living museum with over 100 historical buildings
It is worth planning a whole day for the Ballenberg Open-Air Museum. The park, over 65 hectares in size, has over 100 historical residential and commercial buildings from all over Switzerland to be discovered and admired, embedded in an impressive mountain landscape. As soon as you enter the open-air museum, you feel transported back to a bygone era and immerse yourself in the nostalgic world of agricultural Switzerland from the past. The original houses from different eras, more than 250 farm animals, and demonstrations of traditional handicrafts and customs give a unique and lively insight into life in the past. The Ballenberg Open-Air Museum is best reached by car in 1 hour 15 minutes.
