Eifel-Blick "LVR-Freilichtmuseum Kommern"
The site is located on the northern edge of the Eifel at an altitude of 310 metres above sea level. The view in northern direction reaches far over the south-eastern tip of the Lower Rhine Bay, the Zülpicher Börde.
In addition to the high soil fertility, which it owes to the loess blown up during the last ice age, the Börde also has a favourable climate for agriculture. It is therefore not surprising that the view is mainly of a landscape dominated by agriculture.
Under the Börde landscape there are also large brown coal deposits, which are extracted in 3 large open-cast mines for power generation. The steam clouds of the power plant towers visible in the background are a hint.
The open-air museum invites you to visit. Old half-timbered houses, complete farms and a windmill take the visitor back to the time of the 19th century. You can watch craftsmen and farmers at work.
