All agesOn the move at Ballenberg

Our museum guides are known for their ability to breathe life into the area. The tour focuses on the rural way of life in past times. There is a lot to tell about the erstwhile home decor, about the characteristic architecture of the various regions of Switzerland, about the crafts, about the daily work in the home and on the farm, about cultural traditions, about gardening and animal husbandry.

In this package, the students get a general overview of the Open-Air Museum Ballenberg. At various stations we provide information about the historic buildings and their furnishings. Participants learn about the tasks and working life of the former residents at the activity stations. Here, they get hands-on experience in, e.g. whittling, sawing, shingling, carding, spinning or winnowing.

8 - 14 yearsOn the craft trail

In the workshops of the Open-Air Museum Ballenberg, many old crafts are still actively practised today: basketwork, forging, braiding, spinning, weaving and carving are only some of the many crafts demonstrated daily. In the school programme, students compare current and historical living and working conditions. They examine handcrafted products and try out almost forgotten techniques and skills.
