tips for excursions

The Flederwisch museum is where the past really comes to life

Pan for gold, make paper, study submarines and see a steam engine in action: the Flederwisch museum takes its visitors on a real trip through time.

The outside of the Flederwisch adventure grounds might not give much away, but once you cross the threshold, you're in a world of wonders. It is the home of traditional crafts from long ago, such as printing, glassblowing and marbling. It also gives young visitors a chance to learn about technical discoveries and processes in a playful, entertaining way. Transmission technology, steam engines, hot-bulb engines and even submarines – there's so much here. The guided tours are specially designed to entertain and inform children, and the museum also lets them try out different crafts as well, such as pottery, papermaking, panning for gold – and even printing dollars. But it's not just kids who are captivated by their trip to Flederwisch: grown-ups love the time-travelling feeling when they see Bavaria's largest steam engine, and they also love relaxing in the museum's charming garden.

The items on sale at the extra-special gift shop are unique presents for friends and family at home, and the site's steampunk atmosphere is even evident in the decor of the café. If you have a taste for food "just like granny used to make", then it's the right place for you. The beer garden sells coffee, cakes and small snacks along with a range of alcoholic beverages. When you get your order, relax and take in the view of the garden and surroundings.

Getting here: Flederwisch is just 7 minutes' walk from Furth im Wald station. Leave the station building and walk west along Bahnhofstrasse for 130 m, heading towards Freudensprungstrasse. Keep to the right to stay on Bahnhofstrasse as the street turns slightly. After 100 m, the street changes its name to Am Lagerplatz. After 150 m, turn right and keep walking for about 100 until you reach Flederwisch Museum on the left-hand side.
