Local Museum Achental at the Sixenhof

The Local Museum Achental at the shores of Lake Achensee is located in a beautiful old farmhouse.

On the northern bank of Lake Achensee, in Achenkirch near the shipping pier "Scholastika", a gorgeous Tyrolean farmhouse is situated. It dates back to the year 1361 AD and was rebuilt in 1810 after a fire. In 1984 the friends' association "Achentaler Heimatmuseum" was founded and it restored the beautiful farmhouse which is in possession of the municipality of Achenkirch. In 1987 the Local Museum Achental (Heimatmuseum Achental) finally has been opened.

Inside the Sixenhof plenty of former way of life and world of work of Tyrolean farmers can be experienced. 21 rooms are dispersed on three floors ans show exhibits of the fields handicraft, hunting, fishing, firemanship, Lake Achensee shipping and timber industry. The two lower floors are dedicated to former rural life. Also a farriery, a cobbler's shop and a weaving mill are shown.

The Sixenhof is also venue of popular events, like the traditional erecting of the maypole on May 1 and the Achental Fair in October. At Christmas time, however, the farm houses one of the oldest cribs of the Achental valley with life-size figures and live animals in the stable. Also interesting: getting married in the Sixenhof.
