Düppel museum village is a reconstructed medieval village complete with thatched cottages, store houses, craft workshops, paddocks and gardens. The dwellings supported by wooden posts are built on the foundations of a 13th century settlement. They were gradually constructed using techniques used back in the Middle Ages.
Domestic animals bred back from extinction and long-forgotten commercially utilised plants are as much a part of the museum as the practice of traditional crafts. Düppel museum village is an internationally recognised centre for experimental archaeology in the heart of Berlin carrying out research into the way of life in a medieval village: the three-field system is operated here, ancient wild and cultivated plants are grown and domestic animals, such as the Düppel pig, protected and bred back from extinction.
Guided tours of the village are offered on Sundays. On market days and at medieval festivals things get even more lively, with a chance to experience everyday medieval life up close.
