The Open Air Museum Ballenberg in the Bernese Oberland is a unique open air museum where you can get an insight into the Swiss way of life - partly from times gone by.
On the 66-hectare site, you will visit buildings from all over Switzerland and get to know rural everyday life better. You'll also have the opportunity to meet the farm animals of Swiss agriculture and see the cute farm animals in a petting zoo.
Traditional crafts such as blacksmithing, braiding, spinning, weaving, carving and many more are still practiced. You have the opportunity to look over the shoulder of the professionals at their work or even lend a hand yourself. The products from the manufactory are also for sale, so you can take a special souvenir or a delicious snack.
Numerous food and beverage options are spread throughout the grounds, ranging from restaurants serving local cuisine to picnic areas where you can enjoy the food you've brought with you or fresh wood-fired bread purchased at the museum.
