Living History Park: Baernau-Tachov

What Colonial Williamsburg did for the Revolution, the living history park at Baernau-Tachov is working on doing for the Middle Ages. Our family ticket was 12 Euros and included audioguides for everyone! On the weekend that we visited, there were a number of families spending their summer vacation living in historical style-- pounding their porridge, wearing scratchy clothes, and sleeping on rope mattresses. Dedicated lovers of history!

 Check the park website for seasonal hours and to see about living history weekends, which add a whole new dimension to the experience.

Pack a lunch or dine at the history park cafe, and if you have little guys the playground/ archaeological sand excavation pit will make them happy, too!

The park is 1 hour and 10 minutes from Grafenwoehr, and, bonus: The Crystal Factory Outlet Store is right on the way. Neustadt also has a few restaurants and pizzerias if the morning was too chaotic to allow for packed lunches.
