Groß Raden Archaeological Museum

Groß Raden, Germany

The Groß Raden Archaeological Open Air Museum is in a depression that borders directly onto the lake of Groß Radener See. On a peninsula in front of that lies its circular castle rampart, visible from afar, which has a diameter of 50 metres. From 1973 to 1980 extensive excavations were carried out here, led by Ewald Schuldt, during the course of which the remnants of a Slavic settlement dating to the 9th and 10th centuries was unearthed. The fort has been reconstructed based on the excavations and established as an archaeological open-air museum. It has been enhanced by finds from the Slavic castle of Behren-Lübchin.

It was a wonderful day. Warm sun from above, impressive buildings. The children enjoyed themselves too. Herbs, cream and deliciously brewed liqueurs as well as many other things could be purchased. The toilets after the hike from the parking lot right behind the entrance were also great. All in all, it was great *****

We loved it. I was there 30 years ago and couldn't remember well. Here history became pictorial again.

Ein super Erlebnis! Ein Tag vorher haben wir angerufen und die netten Mitarbeiterinnen haben alles in Bewegung gesetzt, damit uns eine Führung ermöglicht wird. Die Führung war sehr gut, spannend und auch lustig. GROßES DANKESCHÖN an die Mitarbeiterin, die super auf unsere verrückte Gruppe eingegangen ist ??

We parked in Groß Raden, across from the classic car museum. From there you walk about 10 minutes to the Slav Museum, which was closed at the beginning of July due to Corona. It takes another 10 to 15 minutes to walk through the woods and fields to the actual open-air museum. Overall, it is a small, beautiful hike. We really liked the open-air museum because it is designed to be very informative. There is sufficient information material in every "hut". The life of the Vikings is illustrated in a very interesting way. We learned a lot about it. The facility is well maintained. There was no event when we were there. So the area was almost deserted, which didn't bother us at all.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
