Bike Touring Highlight
The Museumshof Rahden was built here between 1962 and 1966 with the help of Stadtsparkasse Rahden and LWL. With the exception of the barn, his buildings were all on different farms in today's town of Rahden. They were removed there, restored and rebuilt here.
The visitor finds a fully furnished farmstead with its diverse trimmings, as it looked in the 19th century.
The entire interior consists of original pieces and comes from the old Rahden office.

The Museumshof Rahden wants to build a bridge from the past to the living and working world of our rural ancestors. With the exception of the barn, his buildings were all on different farmsteads in what is now the town of Rahden. Under the guidance and advice of the State Office for Building Maintenance in Münster, they were removed by local craftsmen, restored and built into a courtyard between 1962 and 1966 - today's museum courtyard.
The main house, a two-column house from 1689, is grouped with a storage room, bakery, barn, sheepfold, wagon shed, Bokemühle, bleaching hut, beehive, earth cellar, drying house and, somewhat apart, the Heuerlingshaus.
All buildings are equipped with old household items. You can see all the equipment that was part of the rural housework of buttering, baking, flax processing as well as spinning and weaving. The old agricultural implements from harrows and plows to sickles and flails are in their place as they used to be.
Since 2012 it has also been possible to get married in the wedding room set up in the old barn.
