Peasant Life Museum In Bielefeld

Peasant Life Museum 2
Peasant life museum in Bielefeld was founded in 1917. When Russian labourers and peasants saw the life abroad they made a revolution.
The expositions of the museum tell about the village mode of life in the XIX century. Among the exhibits: windmill, bakery, barn, flax brake (in the Middle ages Bielefeld was known as one of the leading flax producers).

To the left is a cafe where one may drink a cup of coffee with a roll that has just been taken out of the stove burnt by real firewood.

Timber framing: logs were covered with clay, then by bricks and other materials available. Brick houses were a luxury.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
