The Glentleiten Open Air Museum is the largest of its kind in Southern Bavaria. It provides detailed insight into the everyday life of the people of Upper Bavaria, their construction and building culture and their working environment.
More than 60 original buildings have been conserved and translocated together with their equipment to be restored in the midst of a landscape cultivated to conform to historic patterns.
On the widely spread terrain of the museum you will find a variety of gardens, forests and meadows with ancient animal species, with spectacular views of the mountains and lakes of Upper Bavaria to be expected everywhere.

Historic Breeds of Domestic Animals
Domestic animals formerly widespread in Upper Bavaria and nowadays often endangered are intrinsically tied to the cultivated landscape. The animals living at the museum during the season include mountain sheep breeds, such as the brown and black mountain sheep, the stone sheep and the spectacle sheep, as well as Bavarian geese, Southern German carthorses and cattle of the Murnau-Werdenfels breed.
