Bike Touring Highlight
Anyone who is interested in our diet and would like to understand how agriculture has developed should take a look around the open-air museum here. There is a lot to discover.
In addition to the typical buildings of Lower Saxon villages from the 19th century, a lot of (agricultural) technology can be seen. But also animal welfare. On special days there are demonstrations and activities that are best researched on the Internet beforehand. ;-)

Even those who just drive past it will feel the charm of the open-air museum on the Kiekeberg. The 12-hectare area, on which more than 40 historic buildings from the region between Nordheide and Elbmarschen have been put together to form a village, stretches along the northern slope of the Kiekeberg.
If you want to stay there longer: It is open all year round from Tuesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends and public holidays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is only closed on Mondays.

Visiting the open-air museum is certainly particularly interesting.
You'll need a lot of time for that. With an entrance fee of 9 euros, you should also take your time.
I will visit the open-air museum at another time and not combine it with a bike tour.
The many tips and information on the information boards in the photos will certainly give you a good overview of whether and when you are going to visit the museum.

The open-air museum on the Kiekeberg is located in the south of Hamburg. More than 40 historic buildings on a 12-hectare outdoor area tell of the culture and way of life in the Winsener Marsch and the northern Lüneburg Heath.
It is a lively and family-friendly hands-on museum. For this reason, children are particularly welcome and have free entry under the age of 18.
The representation of the rural farm economy is not limited to the historical buildings. Large fields and pastures are worked by hand or with equipment from the early days of industrialization and Schleswig draft horses. An ecological path opens up insights into historically grown environmental issues in the region.
Of course, a living museum also includes “residents”: old livestock breeds such as Pomeranian geese, Ramelsloher blue legs, colored Bentheim pigs, Schleswig draft horses, Bentheim sheep and German black and white lowland cattle make a visit to the museum an unforgettable experience for young and old.
Numerous action days take place throughout the year: culinary events such as the slaughter festival, cheese market or sweet Sunday, the tractor meeting and the classic car meeting for all friends of horsepower and technology, through to the historical fair, the arts and crafts markets and the plant markets. All campaign days enchant with their unique atmosphere!

Visiting times by appointment during Corona is wonderfully relaxed, as everything can really be viewed in peace due to the small number of guests. The Gstro sells little things, cold drinks and really good coffee at the counter. For children, the water playground 🔝also Badebüx / changing clothes is not forgotten. Adults can comfortably watch from the benches.

A very nice museum. Various hands-on activities are also offered for children.The best thing for me is that I can also go there on Sundays to buy bread or cakes from the in-house shop. If you tell the cash register that you only want to shop, then you can do it without admission.
