The Alpine Farmers’ Museum Alpbach in the Alpbachtal valley is located in the Vorder-Unterberg Farm.
Some hundred metres above the little church in Inneralpbach in the Alpbachtal valley a gorgeous ancient farmhouse is located at the edge of the forest. It is the Vorder-Unterberg Farm which dates back to the first half of the 17th century. Until 1952 it was inhabited, 1975 the accommodation wing of the farm was leased by the municipality of Alpbach and the Alpine Farmers' Museum Alpbach was founded. Today about 800 items of furniture and implements are shown in this museum (Alpbacher Bergbauernmuseum) which document the former life of the locals.
For example the ancient wood-panelled parlour with the tiled stove as well as the smokehouse with all the pots, where still today the Speck bacon of Alpbach is smoked can be visited. On the first floor the bedrooms of the parents and children with beautiful wardrobes and chests are situated. Also a granary and the private chapel can be found here.
At the back of the farmhouse, the stable and the barn are located - still today cows, chickens and pigs live on the farm. Therefore the Alpine Farmers' Museum Alpbach is also knows as "The Living Museum". The proud owners of the farm, Mr. and Mrs. Schiessling, are also your museum guides.
