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.
