Mountain farmers’ museum Wildschönau

The historic walls of the “z’Bach” museum in Wildschönau would have much to tell about farmers’ lives in Tyrol.

In a beautiful ancient farmstead dating back to 1795, about 1,200 exhibits teach you more about the hard farmers' lives in Tyrol. Either wooden butter forms or scythes, copper jars or old pens, there is much to see! More exhibits are presented in theme specific rooms: One of them is dedicated to the minister Thaler, who in the 1930s emigrated to Dreizehnlinden in Brasil, another to the family of actors Hörbiger, originating in the high valley of the Wildschönau.

But not only the museum deserves to be visited. In the barn floor, in which in winter corn was threshed, as well as in the cowshed, there are events taking place on a regular basis. Moreover the farm-women of the Wildschönau offer local delicacies that you absolutely have to taste. Very popular is also the farmer's market taking place every Thursday afternoon in summertime.

A visit to the museum can be well combined with a walk on the Franziskus Trail. Basing on "The Canticle of the Sun by St. Francis of Assisi", the sculptor Hubert Flörl created 9 bronze stations along this path. It stretches between Niederau and Oberau, taking past the mountain farmers' museum (Bergbauernmuseum Wildschönau). An ideal excursion destination!
