    North of the "Vogelkoje Meeram" on Amrum lies for many years an archaeological excavation area. There were found settlement traces from the Iron Age and Neolithic megalithic tombs. On a historical basis, an iron-age house was built in 2014 on a scale of 1: 1 true to the original.
    The reconstructed Iron Age house is a residential stable house, as it was built since the Bronze Age. It is aligned in the east-west direction like the other discovered buildings in the archeological area, in order to offer as little attack surface as possible to the locally prevailing west winds. The framework of the house consists of a construction of oak logs and larch roofing lumber. The Iron Age house is 15 meters long, five and a half meters wide and 4.3 meters high. For the replica, the craftsmen used just grown pedunculate oaks, which were probably used in the original. The house walls are made up of grass or heather. The thatched ridge roof is supported by pairs of wooden posts set in the house, which were buried in the ground.

    In the archaeological excavation area north of Vogelkoje Meeram, an Iron Age house was reconstructed 1: 1 true to the original on a historical basis in 2014. It is a so-called stable house in which people and animals lived under one roof. The reconstructed house makes the old times come alive for every visitor.
    Small potsherds were found all around the site, which document the village settlement from the earliest times.
    Good to know: You can reach the Iron Age House via a boardwalk from the Vogelkoje. The path from here to the archaeological area leads from the present (Vogelkoje) through the Iron Age (old settlement finds in the wide dune valley) to the Neolithic (Neolithic large stone grave). Prices: free of charge
    Opening times: always open
    Address: North of Vogelkoje in a dune valley between the beach section of Nebel and Norddorf.Parking: The Iron Age House cannot be reached directly by car. It is best to park in Norddorf and go on a hike through the dunes

    To find such a highlight on Amrum will surely surprise you. Nevertheless, it is historically interesting that Amrum was settled so early

    The replica of an Iron Age house stands in the area of the archaeological area opened in June 2011 at the Vogelkoje Meeram nature experience area on the North Sea island of Amrum (North Frisia district, Schleswig-Holstein). The building in the northwest of the municipality of Nebel was rebuilt in 2014 according to plans by the architect Peter Heck-Schau. The Ministry of Environment of Schleswig-Holstein issued an exceptional permit for the construction of the reconstruction at the original site in what is now the Amrumer Dünen nature reserve.

    Great location! So the Iron Age (800 to 30 BC) comes to life again. There is an interesting stone age burial site nearby.
