Media Articles about the Lake Dwelling Museum


A summary about a few articles about the Lake Dwelling Museum.


The museum of lake dwellings in Unteruhldingen is situated on the north shore of Lake Constance between Überlingen and Meersburg at the edge of the oldest nature reserve on the lake. The museum comprises a total of 20 pile dwellings and is one of the most popular tourist attractions on the lake.

One of Europe's first open-air museums, the reconstructed Stone and Bronze Age lake dwellings on Lake Constance (4000 to 850 BC), erected between 1922 and 2007, were based on extensive excavations carried out in the area. With uncanny attention to detail and a passion for the past, the Pfahlbaumuseum in Unteruhldingen evokes the daily life, religion and crafts of that time.

On a very sunny day as there would follow many, officials from the three partner countries of the “Delphi” project opened the website by mouse click and walked with the other invited guests across the 2 km long route through prehistory and history, with which the Pfahlbaumuseum in Unteruhldingen links itself into their environment.

The lake-dwelling museum of Unteruhldingen is situated on the Lake Constance in the South-East of Germany, on the northern shore of an international lake that borders Switzerland in the South and Austria in the East. It shows 20 Neolithic and Bronze Age houses (4000 – 850 BC), includes an archaeological research institute and a museum building on shore for temporary and regular exhibitions.
