Black Forest farms of the 16th to 18th century with adjoining buildings such as the storehouse, bakery and stillhouse, grain mill and sawmill can be found at the Vogtsbauernhof open-air museum in Gutach on the Black Forest Railway. Most of the buildings are open to the public, and black smoke rooms, furnished farmhouse parlours and bedchambers with painted furniture, shield clocks and tiled stoves can be seen in the houses as well as the impressive roof structures of the large farmsteads, which were used to store hay.
The visitor obtains a fascinating insight into rural life and housing and the rural culture and technology of the Black Forest. A great variety of traditional crafts are demonstrated every day. Guided tours of the museum or guided tours on particular themes are also available, e.g. the guided tour of the mill.
