A step back in time

Ballenberg is an outdoor museum that displays traditional buildings and architecture from all over the country. 

  • There are over 100 buildings that have been transported from their original sites

  • Some industrial and crafting buildings still operate to give demonstrations of traditional rural crafts, techniques, and cheese making

  • There are many farm animals on the grounds

  • Each building or house has been recreated to fit its time period

  • The represented regions are: Alpine, Bernese midlands, Bernese oberland, central midlands, central Switzerland, east midlands, eastern Switzerland, Jura, the Valais, Ticino, west midlands



I loved walking through the sites and feeling as if I had gone back in history and entered different eras. I also enjoyed seeing all of the cute little farm animals.
