The Archaeological Open Air Museum Gross Radenfollow was one of my favourite places to visit when I was a child and when we went over to Germany a couple of weeks ago, I just had to take Amy and Ben there for a day out. We also took my grandparents along because it was with them that I discovered Gross Raden the very first time.
After a short walk through the forest, we reached the wooden fortress and slid through the gate. What waited for us was a scene that made us travel back in time and straight into the 9th century when Slavic tribes first settled on the little peninsula in the Lake of Gross Raden.
Little clay huts, recreated after extensive excavations between 1973 and 1980, invite visitors to discover the every day life of the Slavs and Amy couldn’t wait to find out what was hiding in each and every one of them.
