Everything that grows and prospers
Cultural landscapes, livestock breeding and agriculture are subject to historical change and thus have their own history. At the LWL Open-Air Museum Detmold we show how man and landscape were and still are dependent on each other.
The department of landscape ecology was established in the museum in 1985. Its work can be seen all over the museum grounds: field shrubs and hedges, arable land and forests are shown with their regional differences. The cultivation of special cultivated plants, the propagation of old varieties or the use of historical fertilisation techniques are part of the landscape ecology work in the open-air museum.
