Active Tour: from Reindeer Hunting to Farming

Kind of Event
Guided Tour

On this tour we dive into the world of our prehistoric ancestors and learn interesting facts about environmental conditions, survival strategies and everyday life during the Stone Age. As part of an age-appropriate and interactive tour through the permanent exhibition of the State Museum, we take a look at the existence of hunters, collectors and fishermen during the last Ice Age and in the much warmer Middle Stone Age. Then we learn how and why the living environment changed drastically with the arrival of the first farmers and cattle breeders. Hands-on replicas bring the participants closer to the content of the tour in a very special way and also make the knowledge tangible. Afterwards, while grinding flour together, the effort required to produce food in the Stone Age is recreated. We also learn what may have been on a prehistoric menu and how fire was kindled. Since the practical part takes place outdoors, we ask that you dress appropriately for the weather. In extreme weather conditions, we reserve the right to cancel or modify the practical part.

The active tour lasts about 1.5 hours and starts at 10:30. The event is suitable for adults and children from 8 years of age.

Admission is free, as is participation in the guided tours.

Due to the limited number of participants, registration is requested, otherwise participation cannot be guaranteed.
