Regional Museum Landeck

The museum in the castle of Landeck recalls the eventful story of the Tiroler Oberland area and the entire region.

Landeck Castle, the impressive emblem of the city of Landeck in the Upper Inntal valley, dates back to the 13th century and sits enthroned at the intersection of the streets leading to the Arlberg, Fernpass and Passo Resia alpine passes. In the course of time the castle had different roles to play, but nowadays it is a well-known event location and popular venue for civil ceremonies.

Landeck Castle houses the Regional Museum Landeck, illustrating the history of the entire region. Part of the museum is dedicated to the so-called "Jenische", nomadic people which were under way with their barrows in order to supply the population with goods and services such as broom-making and pan repairing. Another area is dedicated to the "Swabian Children" (Schwabenkinder) - in the 19th century children from poor families were brought to the child markets in Germany, mainly in upper Swabia. There they could be purchased by farmers for the season. The permanent exhibition "Bleiben oder Gehen" (Staying or Leaving) offers an encounter with people and their fates, with the life in the homeland and abroad.

Also some of the oldest playing cards of the German-speaking area are on display. In the castle there are also two art galleries - since 1973 the old building is a Centre of Visual Arts in the Tiroler Oberland area. The Castle Gallery (Schlossgalerie) exhibits above all contemporary arts, especially of local artists. In the course of the year a series of exhibitions focusing on this topic are organised. In the Gallery in the Tower (Turmgalerie), however, the main issue is the social and cultural identity in our lives. Landeck Castle is also a research centre and venue for seminars and tastings. Those who love music can look forward to the concerts staged in the Gothic castle hall, as well as events such as "Oberländer Advent" at Christmas time, transforming it into a fairytale place to stay at.
