Mittelalterdorf / Freiluftmuseum von Botanicus

Das historische Mittelalter Dorf und der damit verbundenen ökologischen Gartenanlage ist eines der Hauptprojekte der Firma Botanicus. Das Mittelalterdorf ist kein Modell oder eine Nachmachung eines Dorfes aus einer bestimmten Zeit. Das Hauptziel des Bautes war es, eine mittelalterliche Atmosphäre für die Kunsthandwerker zu erschaffen, welche eine Symbiose mit den Gärten bildet. Alle Materialien - hauptsächlich Hölzer und Steine stammen aus recyclten Materialien aus der unmittelbaren Region. Das historische Dorf wurde 1999 fertiggestellt und ist seit dem Jahre 2000 für Besucher geöffnet.
