Local Museum “Das Grüne Haus” Reutte

The Local Museum of Reutte is situated in a green house decorated with facade paintings by Jakob Zeiller.

The stately home was built in the 2nd half of the 16th century, and the frames of the portal and the windows were painted in a unique way. Then, in 1779, Johann Jakob Zeiller shaped the impressive facade - its strong green colour gave the name to the house. 1986 the building went to the property of the municipality. After an extensive renovation, where valuable Renaissance paintings and stuccoed ceilings came out, in 1990 the Local Museum Reutte was inaugurated.

The "Lüftlmalerei", a handicraft method of wall-painting, on the exterior facade show the Holy Trinity on a cloud. The Local Museum of Reutte impressively documents the history of the municipality of Reutte and the Ausserfern region. Special exhibitions, however, show the development of the region around Reutte. A real attention is given to the development of painting from Baroque until Classicism. A valuable collection of works of the Zeiller family can be admired.

In fact, it was Johann Jakob Zeiller (1708-1783), who painted the exterior facade of "Das Grüne Haus" (The Green House). Furthermore some works of the portrait and flower painter Anna Stainer-Knittel (1841-1915) are exhibited in the museum, she became famous as "Geierwally". The museum (Heimatmuseum Reutte), awarded with the Tyrolean Museum Award and the Austrian Museum Quality Seal, was reopened at the end of 2021 after an extensive renovation.
