How the Waldler in the Bavarian Forest used to live the everyday life of the peasants and labourers (the Waldler”) in the inner Bavarian Forest was in the 17th and 18th centuries full of troubles. A vivid picture of this time gives the Museum of Finsterau with his memorable buildings since 1980. In the old village smithy, the anvil sounds again when the blacksmith forge horseshoes and nails or provides a plow with a new fitting. The Ehrn”is an old Inn than Kirchaitnach, which today no longer farmers and carters, but Museum visitors sit. All farms and houses of yesteryear are convicted in the open-air museum.
It began in 1980 with the Kapplhof, a typical Waldlerhof, where House and cattle stall together under one roof. The ATO farm of Potzerreut consists of a large Wohnspeicherhaus, in house, Austragshaus, oven, cowshed, ox barn and barn. The House was built in 1704, the barn was built in 1927. Rachel Pak insists that this is the case. The courtyard of Petzi is for a prosperous estate, also if the Chambers and offices only are modestly furnished. Other buildings such as the Sachl, the dancers, the Schanzer Haley, the deer head hut and the wooden Chapel complete the open-air museum.
