LVR-Freilichtmuseum Kommern

History comes alive at the LVR open-air museum in Kommern: Chickens run around between the houses and peck at the ground, cattle graze peacefully in the pasture and fresh bread smells waft from the bakery. Visitors can wander through five different assemblies and their buildings. The journey through time in the Rhineland begins at the end of the 15th century and ends with the 20th century. Exhibitions and various festivals and markets, such as the Anno Dazumal fair, round off the museum experience.
