  • The Pfahlbaumuseum is an archaeological open-air museum on Lake Constance with an attached museum building in the municipality of Uhldingen-Mühlhofen in the Bodenseekreis district in Baden-Württemberg, which presents archaeological finds and replicas of stilt villages from the Stone and Bronze Ages. It includes 23 stilt houses. A scientific research institute is attached to the museum. With up to 300,000 visitors a year, including more than 100,000 schoolchildren, it is one of the largest and most visited open-air museums in Europe. As early as 1922, the year it was built, it had 6,000 visitors. In June 2011, the remains of numerous historic pile-dwelling settlements, including the Unteruhldingen-Stollenwiesen pile-dwelling field about 500 meters south of the museum, were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

  • The Pfahlbaumuseum in Unterduhlingen gives an impression of the life of our ancestors more than 3,500 years ago. 23 houses were reconstructed on stilts according to the former construction method. Inside, they show excerpts from the lives of people in the Stone Age and Bronze Age. Stone carving, casting of bronze, pottery and weaving were techniques that were already known during this time. Replicas and original finds on various areas demonstrate this vividly. The museum also deals with the diet and the cultic life of the time. Visitors will also be introduced to underwater archeology, which provided important insights into the replication of the stilt houses and the way of life of the people.
    For children, an adventure trail is set up where they can B. can deal with the stone drilling.

  • A visit to the Pfahlbaumuseum brings the Beucher closer to life in the Lake Constance region over 3,500 years ago. Sometimes one marvels at what our ancestors already dominated during this time.

  • The pile dwellings have been reconstructed after archaeological finds and excavations. These existed in the Stone and Bronze Ages on Lake Constance. The museum offers an interesting insight into the building methods and way of life of the people of this time. Admission 10 € adults. It is worth it and the price is reasonable, as a lot of the staff tell interesting facts on site. 😉👍

  • Komoot asks what should you pay attention to when you are there?
    My recommendation is to visit the stilt houses in Unteruhldingen. In Überlingen there are none.
