Freilichtmuseum
History and tradition
Vörstetten
Germany
The municipality of Vörstetten is situated between the Black Forest and Kaiserstuhl, directly in front of Freiburg's gates. In an open-air museum on the northern edge of the idyllic half-timbered village, young and old can embark on a journey back in time to late antiquity - more precisely: into the 4th and 5th centuries A.D., when the Romans still ruled on the left bank of the Rhine in present-day Alsace and Germanic tribes called alamanni settled in Breisgau.

On over 4.000 m2 history becomes an experience. Based on archaeological excavations, a completely reconstructed homestead from the time of the early Alamanni presents itself to the visitors.

The main building, storage building, pit house, craftsman's house, smithy and pottery workshops, oven, fountain and show garden with old grain varieties, colouring plants and herbs as well as a pagan cult site invite visitors to learn, discover and marvel. Original finds can be seen in the museum building, as well as special exhibitions and the themes "From grain to bread" and "In the beginning there was fire".
How did the Alamanni live and work? How did they dress? Actors with an authentic Alamanic appearance as well as jewellery makers, woodturners, pottery makers, blacksmiths, fire-makers and much more captivate young and old alike: experience how the everyday life of the Brisigavi awakened to new life 1600 years ago!
