A full day activity, Ballenberg is a unique outdoor museum with over 100 historic houses from all over the country that have been carefully disassembled, moved, and reinstalled as a series of regional “villages”. They also offer daily demonstrations of local crafts such as watch-making, cheese-making, needlework, woodcarving, charcoal burning, and dozens more. If you love traditional crafts and architecture, you will fall in love with the Ballenberg Outdoor Museum.
The Ballenberg Outdoor Museum is near Brienz, between Interlaken and Meiringen in the Bernese Oberland. It’s a bit off the beaten path, and takes a bit of getting to if you don’t have a car (there are busses), but it’s well worth a visit.
