Berlin is a city with history everywhere. But did you ever ask yourself how people used to live here before there was a city? In Museumsdorf Düppel you can travel more than 800 years back in time and visit a village showing what it probably looked like around 1200 AC in this area.
In 1975 a Berlin museum society rebuilt this village according to archaeological findings that were excavated on this site. Today you can see medieval dwellings in the middle of pure nature, but quite close to the hustle and bustle of the city. Inside a wooden fence small houses for living, baking and working can be visited. Not to forget beautiful gardens and fields, old working equipment and most important: living animals!
So if you’re tired of people watching from the bench of your favorite cafe, travel to Düppel (Bus 115 to Ludwigsfelder Straße or 118/622 to Clauertstraße) and watch cute sheep grazing and a rare breed of pigs lazing in the mud. If you are lucky they might just be having babies :).
For more action the outdoor museum organises some events where you can see historical craftsmen working, listen to fairytales or try freshly cropped food. Just check the event plan.
This season the museum opens from March 25th until October 16th, 2016.
