Open-Air Mu­seum

Where Berlin - - SIGHTSEEING -

As an 800-year- old piece of agri­cul­tural par­adise in the sub­urbs of Ber­lin, Domäne Dahlem (pre­vi­ous page) is a func­tion­ing farm ded­i­cated to of­fer­ing a peek into liv­ing off the land and ex­plor­ing the link be­tween pas­tures and the shop­ping bag. Ad­mire the re­stored 1500s manor house and charm­ing old sta­bles, then stroll the fields to visit the an­i­mals and im­pres­sively large veg­etable gar­den. A clunky old trac­tor and old-fash­ioned carousel will de­light kids, while grownups can pur­chase fresh pro­duce har­vested straight from the farm. On Satur­day morn­ings, the court­yard is filled with the mar­ket stands of or­ganic farm­ers from around Ber­lin and Bran­den­burg. Join the fes­tiv­i­ties on 19 and 20 Septem­ber when the mu­seum cel­e­brates the whole­some potato: Harvest your own, then dig into a steam­ing spud fresh from the fire.
