New Lake Dwellings opened in Unteruhldingen -
Hands-on Activities during Pentecost holiday
|During the summer of 2006, the SWR-Broadcasting company sent 13 people into the Stone Age. The village ensemble, reconstructed for the series at a pond in the hinterland of Lake Constance, consists of three villages a village square, and stables, opened on May 22, 2007.
Between May 27 and June 9, 2007, the Open Air Museum offers „Stone Age – Hands-on weeks“. Visitors can learn how difficult it would be for people in 21st Century, having to live back in the Stone Age. Currently there is also a special exhibit to the ARD/SWR-Documentary. In this exhibit test persons report about their different experiences while living like the people 5000 years ago. As people of today, they quickly learned how to start a fire, to cover a roof, to use bow and arrow, and to gather foodstuff directly out in nature. Tours at the Lake Dwellings are offered daily between 9.00 am and 7.00 pm.
