{Germany} Potato Festival at Domäne Dahlem

September 25, 2016


I’ve mentioned the Domäne Dahlem – an agricultural museum and working form in the South of Berlin – before. Since our move, it’s just an easy door-to-door subway ride away, so we have become more frequent guests over the past year. The highlights are definitely their special seasonal fairs, which take place throughout the year. Just a couple of weeks ago we visited their Medieval Knight Festival, and today we went to see the Potato Festival. Ever since hearing about it, #MuseumBoy has wanted to go […]

{Germany} Medieval Festival at Domäne Dahlem

September 8, 2016


Last weekend we visited the Medieval Festival at Berlin’s Domäne Dahlem – after making some quick Knights’ costumes so the boys could dress for the occasion (Edit: You can now find a tutorial for the costumes over at The Bear & The Fox)! It’s just one of the many fantastic annual festivals they host there every year. In the past, we’ve been to their historical funfair, their Christmas market and their Spring festival, and we are looking forward to the potato festival at the end of […]

100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.18 If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you will already have seen glimpses of our Easter holiday in Gothenburg, which included quite a few museums. I’ve been itching to share some of our Gothenburg museum visits here with you, but sadly our fantastic holiday was followed by #MuseumBaby falling ill. Again. So instead of finding time to write and download the photos from our trip, I’ve been in and out the doctors with him all week. Poor wee guy. […]

Last weekend, we thought we’d do something we have been meaning to do for the past few years but never gotten round to because transport was always too complicated – visit the Advent Market at the Domäne Dahlem, a working farm and museum in one of Berlin’s suburbs. Now that we’ve moved house, we discovered it was just a direct train ride away! First we walked around the stalls, which were much as you would expect from any Christmas market, but, unlike the ones at […]

We’ve almost reached the end of August, but with a little bit of luck it’s not the end of summer. Or maybe we’ll have a golden Autumn. Whatever the season, when the weather is fair, there are plenty of outdoors museum destinations to head to. Here’s a round up of some of my favourites that have featured on Museum Diary. Open Air Museums Domäne Dahlem, Berlin, Germany Historic Village of Hokkaido, Sapporo, Japan Museumsdorf Düppel, Berlin, Germany St Fagan’s National History Museum, near Cardiff, Wales […]

Historical Fun Fair at Domäne Dahlem

May 15, 2013


Last year was our first summer in Berlin, and we stuck pretty close to the city centre in exploring the city that had become our new home. This year, we’ve decided we want to be more adventurous and make the effort to go on little day trips at the weekends. So when the Domäne Dahlem, a country estate and museum in one of the outer districts of Berlin, advertised they were having an historical fun fair the weekend before last, we were on the next […]
