In the Black Forest Open Air Museum Vogtsbauernhof the Black Forest culture and history come to life. Visitors will find out how people lived and worked in Black Forest farmhouses during the last 400 years. As well as six fully-furnished farmhouses from different parts of the Black Forest, the visitors will find a labourer’s cottage and about 15 outbuildings, such as mills, sawmills, storehouses, a distillery and a chapel, fields, kitchen gardens and a herb garden. The museum presents the many different faces of life in the Black Forest: its architecture, traditions, customs and trades, and the way people lived and farmed throughout the ages.

Founded as a museum of architecture over 40 years ago, today visiting the “Vogtsbauernhof Museum” also means to experience living history directly: throughout the whole season the visitors find traditional breeds of domestic animals in stables or out at feed, smell the smoke in old “Black Kitchens”, witness old handcrafts and mills in action, participate in free guided tours and take part in one of the many hands-on activities. Additionally, visitors are invited to the numerous traditional events ranging from the special day for traditional costumes to the “Schlachtfest” (traditional end-of-season feast), plus every year a new special exhibition on cultural history in the Black Forest. Each winter, at the third advent weekend, there is a huge Christmas market on the museum’s ground where various craftsmen offer handmade products and regional specialities. Futhermore, the Christmas Market is framed by concerts, programs for children and lectures/readings.
