  • Really a great park for all ages! 5* for the beautifully reconstructed way of living and working in those bygone eras. The big plus is the presence of excellent "interpreters": people who are dressed....  more »
  • We had an amazing day! It was not only fun for our kids, but a also a great day for adults. Poeple who work their are passionate about what they do and you see the result with your own eyes!  more »
  • A very nice place to go with kids or even an entire class. They really show you what living in ye olden days was like. They are not just actors telling a story, no while they are there they literally live like the people used to. Need clothes? They weave them. (Takes a surprising long time) need to cast a brons sword? They make their own mold and cast it themselves. I was surprised at the amount of humor they put in the little shows they had. Even during the gladiator fight there was a nice introduction with music and humor. In short a nice place to take your kids for a day. And perhaps even quite interesting to do as an adult just to go for something entirely different.
  • Nice place to enjoy the middle age era. workshops for kids and shows for all ages. Tickets in the neighborhood of 20€ pp (kids little less, grown up little bit more). Enjoyed a lot despite the bad weather.
