Cultural Landscape Museum in the Wermsdorf Forest

Short facts

Open-air exhibition in Wermsdorf forest with archeological remains from 3,000 years of human settlement.

The Culture Landscape Museum is located in the western part of Wermsdorf forest, in the "Kirchenteich" (church pond), the "Drei-Teichen" (three ponds) and the "Doktorteich" (doctor pond) area.
The open-air museum, i.e. the old archeological sites are divided into the following themes:

1.         The Bronze Age burial ground, south of the "Doktorteich"
2.         The ruins of a medieval tower hill castle / weir system with a farmhouse at the "Drei-Teichen".
3.         The „Wüste Dorf Nennewitz“ at the "Kirchenteich"
4.         Floor plan of a church with graveyard at the "Kirchenteich".
5.         Pit and mine works, east of the three ponds
Since 1990, the findings, relics and archeological remains from 3,000 years of human settlement have been restored by the Friedrich Gustav Klemm Society for Cultural History and Open-Air Museum registered association, and made visible in a Landscape Museum. Sophisticated display boards invite visitors on a 3,200-year journey back in time to the past. In addition, a forest classroom is available in the adjacent parking area and the visitor can admire the archeological sites, burial grounds and relicts on hikes of varying lengths (from 2 to 10 km). Guided tours can be arranged.
