Welcome at the Lake Dwelling Museum Unteruhldingen


During the season your visit starts with a dive to the bottom of Lake Constance - in our multimedia introduction "ARCHAEORAMA" (10 minutes). You will be joining two archeologists surveying the original Lake Dwelling from the Bronze Age. At the end we welcome you in our reconstruted Lake dwellings.

Your visit is always (a partly) guided one, where you´ll enter houses which are closed in between guided tours. Depending on the time of year and day of the week we operate three different sorts of guided tours:


"Classic" guided tour
After visiting the Archaeorama (introduction) we take you on a 30 minute-travel through time. Together with an experiences guide you will visit two houses of the Stone Age and the Bronze Age. After the tour you are free to visit the remaining houses and our exhibition at your leisure. English texts can be found at the outside of the houses and in the exhibition. A free flyer in english and other languages can be downloaded here. This flyer and additional guides in english are also available in our shop at the entrance.


"flexible "open" guided tours
After visiting the "ARCHAEORAMA" and a few introductory words you discover the museum at your leisure. Our guides are waiting for you in the houses to tell you about the Lake Dwellings and their inhabitants back in the Stone Age and Bronze Age.
