The Lake Dwelling Museum in Unteruhldingen at the shore of Lake Constance (Bodensee) consists of reconstructed pile dwellings. The buildings represent settlements from the Stone Age and the Bronze Age, remains of which have been found in the area. The oldest part of the museum was built in 1922.

In 2011 the “Prehistoric Pile Dwellings around the Alps” have been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This includes not only the museum and the findings it is based on, but numerous sites in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy and Slovenia.

The museum is only a short walk from the harbor. During the summer season, boats arrive regularly from e.g. Konstanz and Meersburg.
