Heath museum „Dat ole Huus“ in Wilsede
The heath museum “Dat ole Huus” is located in the centre of the idyllic heath village of Wilsede, which can only be reached on foot, by bicycle or by horse-drawn carriage.
In one of the oldest farmhouses in the Lüneburg Heath nature reserve, you get an insight into life and work on a heath farm in the time around 1850. At that time, there was no chimney in the houses, cooking was done over an open hearth fire, and people and animals lived under one roof.
The museum offers guided tours for a fee, during which you can find out what is behind the German equivalents of the adages “putting your foot down” and “putting your foot in your mouth” and where the term “Plackerei (drudgery)” originally comes from.
The entrance fee includes a visit to the exhibition sheep shed on the Emhoff, where changing exhibitions about the cultural landscape of Lüneburg Heath are shown.
