Franconian Open Air Museum, Fladungen
With more than 30 historical buildings and an open area of 12 hectares, the Franconian Open-Air Museum Fladungen presents village life and farming in Lower Franconia and the neighboring Hessian and Thuringian Rhön. The museum buildings represent a period from the early 17th to the middle of the 20th century. They include farmsteads, two mills, a tavern, a barrel-making workshop, a smithy, a sheep farm, as well as village community buildings such as a church, a brewery, a community freezer and a village school. Embedded in the grounds are cultivated gardens, orchards, pastures and fields. A special feature is the Rhön-Zügle museum railroad. In addition to historic steam and diesel locomotives and wagons from the 1930s, it also includes the ensemble of the historic railroad station, built in 1898/99. The museum is open from April to October. Filming takes place preferably outside the season or by arrangement.
