The Bodensee Sights

Fodor's Review

As you proceed northwest along the lake's shore, a settlement of "pile dwelling"—a reconstructed village of Stone Age and Bronze Age houses built on stilts—sticks out of the lake. This is how the original lake dwellers lived, surviving off the fish that swam outside their humble huts. Real dwellers in authentic garb give you an accurate picture of prehistoric lifestyles. The on-site Pfahlbaumuseum (Open-Air Museum and Research Institute) contains actual finds excavated in the area. Admission includes a 45-minute tour.
