Since quite some time my sister wanted to visit the Swiss Open-Air Museum Ballenberg on one of her next visits. Now it finally happened. Not really being the “museum-type” myself, this was very interesting though. It is a stroll through the past. Many century-old buildings from all different cantons of Switzerland, hundreds of farm animals, traditional, old-time gardens and fields & demonstrations of local crafts showcase how life was in Switzerland in the days gone by. It is a huge area, definitely worth a visit – and don’t forget to bring time, preferably a whole day.
