Busy buzzing bees
It’s all about bees at the Ritten beekeeping museum
A world without bees is simply impossible. In the Ritten beekeeping museum, your children learn a lot of interesting facts about bees and their great importance.
The more than 600 years old, picturesque Plattnerhof farm is home to innumerable busy bees that provide us with honey thanks to their remarkable endurance and hard work. Wearing a sting-proof suit, you can watch these diligent insects at work and get to know where sweet honey comes from.
Besides the apiculture tools in the museum for children, you can visit the spacious garden and the original farm that offers an insight into the life of mountain farmers. There is a lot to learn during a guided tour on the educational bee trail: Did you know that bees always visit the same flower as long as the find enough food there? Or that bees have to visit 60 million flowers for 500 grams of honey? What does the home of the bees look like? How does a bee see and hear? How do these insects touch and smell? And how does the sun impact a bee’s flight?
Visit the Plattenerhof to experience nature with your children and fill up on golden honey, sweet candies, honeycombs, and honey care products.
Have fun watching these busy insects!
