Walk around

Founded over 50 years ago as a museum of Black Forest architecture, today the Open Air Museum Vogtsbauernhof in Gutach appeals to all our senses to impart how people used to live and work in the Black Forest.

The tour around the museum shows the different regions of this mountain range: from the Hotzenwald and the Dreisam Valley via the Schauinsland to the day labourer’s cottage from Oberprechtal, the “Hippenseppenhof” from Furtwangen and, finally, the mighty farmhouses from the Valleys of Gutach and Kinzig.
In total, six completely equipped Black Forest farmhouses from the 16th to the 19th century, a day labourer’s cottage, a 600-year-old sandstone building from the northern Black Forest and 15 additional buildings such as mills, sawmills, a chapel, and storehouses can be visited.
