At the Swiss Open-Air Museum, you’re not expected to just look at things from afar: our interactive activities invite you to get involved and try things for yourself. Join our pharmacists in exploring our spacious garden of fragrant and medicinal herbs, discover exciting handicrafts in our hands-on house or take a deep dive into a particular topic at our many exhibitions.
Ballenberg offers an unforgettable experience for every single visitor. Immerse yourself in the stories of over 100 historic houses, learn about traditional crafts, visit exciting exhibitions and events and say hello to over 200 farm animals at Ballenberg. There are plenty of hands-on activities for everyone who likes to get involved and try things out for themselves.
