“And time goes by...............”

Schleswig-Holstein Open Air Museum
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Molfsee
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 May 2016

A relaxed and interesting way to spend an afternoon wandering amongst the buildings and gardens from olden days, and reading about the families who lived in that part of Germany years ago. There are far too many buildings to see them all, but then most people will pick and chose. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the sun, but sadly no café inside which meant a long walk back to get refreshments at the restaurant outside the grounds and then another walk to where we had left off. We also felt that there was a slight air of neglect , maybe better signing, displays needed dusting, entrance shop could have been fantastic but was extremely tacky. If they need to make money they are missing opportunities

The open air museum in Molfsee/Kiel is rather big. There are all in all over 70 small and big buildings. The bigger ones are fully furnished and give the visitor the feeling of traveling through the time. You can see how people used to live and work only 100 years ago. It´s a perfect place for interested people.
The high number of buildings makes it hard and (later) also a bit boring to visit all of them. The only real attraction for young children is an old carousel and the museum train. Inside the open air museum you can just buy drinks and small snacks. A good restaurant you will find outside of the museum close to the parking area.

If you are cruising and stop in Kiel, there are few options really attractive, as the city itself contributes little or nothing to see. So once walking around the center, we set out to take the bus 501 to the Open Air Museum of Molfsee. In 15 minutes you stand at the door of entry park. The place is well worth seeing, shows a rebuilding of the old houses of the various craft guilds of the area (from farmers, whalers, typical Dutch windmills, etc ...). So with a budget of less than € 10 you input and take a bus ticket , you can saved € 50-60 offering boat tours for visiting us saw the same thing. In short, if you do stop in Kiel, go on your own, not worth booking excursions.

We found that the museum was very much all the same and became boring quickly. Also, even in the height of summer, many of the workshops were closed. The single kiosk in the centre of the park is the only place to get a drink or anything to eat so bring drinks with you or buy them at the entrance.
