Gletteren's pile dwelling village

Immerse yourself in the Stone Age in this recreated pile dwelling village. During demonstrations and workshops you will get to know the way of life of our ancestors.

The pile dwelling village in Gletterens organizes numerous events and workshops around the early history and the way of life of the first farmers who settled on the shores of Lake Neuchâtel (4500-800 BC).

You will discover artisanal techniques from the early days: you can forge a Stone Age knife, a pendant or a lamp from the Paleolithic Age, experience the magic of making fire, demonstrate your hunting talent by throwing a spear or enjoy a Stone Age meal.

Just stroll through the village and enjoy the magic that emanates from its thatched houses. If you want to deepen the experience, you can also spend a night in the tipi.
