Stilt Village – a UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Unteruhldingen Stilt Village is located on Lake Constance in the parish of Uhldingen-Mühlhofen in Baden-Württemberg. The complex consists of an open-air archeological museum and adjoining exhibition building, where archeological finds are displayed and reconstructions of stilt villages from the Stone and Bronze Ages can be visited. It is the oldest open-air museum in Gemany.

Stilt village on the interactive map

Take a guided trip back in time and experience life as it was in the mysterious world of the Stone Age farmers and fishermen 6,000 years ago, and of the bronze smelters 3,000 years ago in the Bronze Age. The path follows a walkway, taking you out across the water from the banks of the lake to the site of the faithfully reconstructed stilt houses, in which visitors can see scenes from everyday life, household utensils and other scientifically authenticated reconstructions from the time.

Set in the heart of the oldest nature reserve in the region, the natural beauty of the countryside around the complex is magical.
In the display rooms you can marvel at a selection of spectacular original finds, as well as enjoying a varying series of exhibitions on related themes.
