Must see · Specialty Museum · Museum
Showcasing half-timbered buildings from the land of Hesse, Freilichtmuseum Hessenpark brings 400 years of history to life. This 60 hectare (148 acre) site is enclosed by the forests and valleys of the Taunus hills, and resembles a town trapped in time. Discover what rural life in Hesse was like centuries ago by exploring originally furnished houses, a post office, windmills, the village school, and many other institutions. Learn about the roles of craftsmen, housewives, and farmers through detailed tours and workshops. Check out the still-operating bakeries and stores, where you can taste a variety of foods manufactured the old-fashioned way. See Freilichtmuseum Hessenpark and all Neu-Anspach has to offer by arranging your trip with our Neu-Anspach road trip planning site.

  • Visited this park with my teenage daughter during the winter. It was a successful trip. Even though we are not from Germany, we found it very interesting and there was enough information in English....  more »
  • As the title says, the whole area has towns and city centres where people still live in historic wood-framed buildings and houses. To then visit this museum is not really all that interesting...  more »
  • Very interesting open-air ethnographic and architecture museum. Many buildings have well reconstructed interiors. There are many small shops with local goods.
  • Lovely open air museum park showing reconstructed/moved old building from around the Hessen area. Some buildings had their interiors preserved but most have an exhibition focusing on past life - from a history of photography exhibition to the history of the printing press (with an actual old printing studio). Great day out with the family!
