The Freilandmusem Oberpfalz was planned and designed based on a concept which was unique in the 1980s throughout Germany and Europe and which is exemplary to this day:
Displaying the history, culture and nature of the Oberpfalz, based on its distinct regions.
Thus, the house landscapes of the Oberpfalz with their buildings typical of the regions came into being. After the turn of the shovel on 28 March 1980 the Stiftland, Oberpfälzer Wald, Oberpfälzer Jura and Nabburger Straße villages as well as the Mühlental were constructed on 30 hectares of land. The now 50 transferred and reconstructed buildings were linked through historic country roads and paths in the style of the 19th century. The fields are traditionally cultivated by agriculturists of the museum. Every year the changes in nature are gathered and documented by scientists. Alongside the open buildings you frequently encounter old pet breeds such as geese, sheep, cows, horses and goats throughout your tour. Peacocks, pigs and rabbits also live in the stables and fields.
