Celtic Village at the Donnersberg – Open-Air Museum
It is an unusual museum – at the Celtic Village in Steinbach, visitors can explore traces of the people who used to live at the Donnersberg Mountain 2000 years ago. The traditional construction of the settlement gives the visitors an impression about the craftsmanship used by the Celts for building houses. Besides competent guided tours there are lots of join-in activities which are not only recommended for kids to proof their creativity and skills.
The Celtic Village is closed at present.
