14 years ago, I visited the open-air museum which features reconstructions of stilt houses from the Stone and Bronze Ages on Lake Constance. Since 2001, these have been a Unesco World Heritage site. I don’t remember much of this visit except that we were herded through and that it was a hot day. I had always hoped to return.
The first buildings were reconstructed in the early 1920s, and are situated approx. 500 m north of where the remains of a stilt house village was found. It’s easy to imagine what an imposing image this village would have made when arriving by boat. Walking through the museum, I marveled at the amazing way these buildings were constructed.
