Swabian Farm Museum: Fascination of Rural Life

You can plunge awhile into the life of a German village in the Swabian Farm Museum located 12 kilometers south of Memmingen. The museum was opened in 1955 and became the first open-air museum in Bavaria. More than 30 rural buildings from different parts of Swabia are gathered in its territory. The oldest of them is 400 years old! Here you can see the farm arrangement, granaries, apiaries, blacksmith’s and bricklayer’s workshops and water-pump stations.

The Farm St. Ulrich Solda, for example, belonged to the family which also owned a bakery in the XVIII century. The house was built of wood, but then the walls were replaced by massive brick ones. The house had two areas: work-commercial and private, which was expanded in 1920, as well as the kitchen, laundry room, living room and two bedrooms were completed. The museum also has a XIX century tavern. Besides, here you can see rare breeds of cattle, bred in Bavaria: Bavarian geese and sheep, Noric horses, Swabian pigs, Allgäu cows, Augsburg hens. The museum is closed to the public from December to February.
