This chapel, consecrated to St. George, is from the hamlet of Kirnberg which contained 11 farms. It belonged to the «Kirnberg chapel community», which built the chapel as a prayer room and oratory and shared the costs and maintenance expenses. The chapel is therefore a private oratory furnished according to the personal requirements and habits of Kirnberg farmers, with altars, statues of saints and pictures.
Wayside crosses were erected as a mark of faith; they exhort godliness and also give assurance to wayfarers on their journeys. The cross with a neo-Gothic figure of Christ is from the Munich district of Berg am Laim. It was donated to the Open Air Museum and, in accordance with the tradition, erected along a path.
The integrity of this sawmill makes it a rare architectural monument. The furnishings are extraordinarily well preserved, offering authentic insight into a small family business typical for rural areas until the 1960s.
An historic filling station from the 1950s is also being constructed. Its original location was on Germany's oldest holiday route (Unterwössen, rural district of Traunstein) and it demonstrates the nascent, post-war tourist industry of Upper Bavaria.
The Fischbach mill belonged to an agricultural property with an imposing estate and was a mill which people paid to use, so it was not only the miller's own grain which was ground, but mainly that of the surrounding farms.
Built in the 17th century and originally a single-roof farmhouse. A hammer mill is exhibited in the former stable. Visitors have the opportunity to watch the museum smith's regular demonstrations of this craft, which is practised very rarely today.
This lime kiln is a facsimile of a kiln which still stands in Lenggries. A stone vestibule with a pitch roof is linked with the combustion chamber and chimney. The lime burned here was used to produce mortar, to paint walls and as a fertiliser. Burning lime was a profitable sideline for farmers.
«Zollingerhalle», originally built in 1928 as a sawmill, is an impressive example of early rural industrial architecture. The roof, which arches over the column-free room, is a lamella construction, developed by Friedrich Zollinger in the early 20th century.
