Built in 1996 on the site of a lakeside village dating back to 3000 B.C., the Neolithic farm at Gletterens brings the prehistoric past back to life. Clay houses and straw rooves have been built here, just as they were 5,000 years ago. Archaeologists decided to create a colony
from the Neolithic era and were able to get an idea of how people lived in their "lake dwellings" from the archaeological sites at Tene.
