Program & Tours

Find out about long-lost crafts and technology: it's like taking a trip with Jules Verne.

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.

News, prices and opening hours are all available here.
