Prehistoric Pile dwellings

The museum at Unteruhldingen has reconstructed the houses of ancient people from up to 7000 years ago. The Stone Age people built them like this as protection from predators and so they were convenient for fishing and trade.

The actual ruins are mainly underground or underwater and so, obviously, pretty hard to see unless you’re a diver or a worm.

You can get the bus there from the train station at Uberlingen, like I did.

The museum is open from 9am to 6:30pm at this time of year. It costs 9€ for an adult and less for children.

There are tours in German and lots of information in English.
