and up in the mountains much of the bavarian way of life has its roots in peasant tradition. until the 19th century more than half the population lived on farms big and small ones. in open air museum is a great way to learn about that history it's best to take part in a guided tour like i do. high above lake you'll find more than 60 historic farms from. they were all removed from their original locations and rebuilt here and so were the pine huts for centuries farmers brought their herds up here in the summer for grazing. from 57 the dairy maid lived there she took care of the animals.
