UNTERRABNITZ OPEN-AIR EARLY MIDDLE AGES MUSEUM VILLAGE
The interactive, open-air museum site shows how Burgenlanders lived in the period between 500 and 1000 AD. The early Middle Ages village consists of a group of five houses where people lived and worked, a pottery kiln, a bakery and a forge. The wide area is fenced in oak. Archaeological finds show that there was a farming settlement on the site of the present-day Unterrabnitz in the early Middle Ages.
The municipality of Unterrabnitz has set itself the task of reconstructing part of this settlement as an archaeological open-air museum, to show locals and visitors what life was like at this time. The early Middle Ages is one of the most exciting periods in European history. Many trails which consequently turned Europe into what it is today were blazed in the period between 500 and 1000 AD.
