Landeck Castle, the impressive emblem of the town of Landeck, dates back to the 13th century and sits enthroned at the intersection of the streets leading to the Arlberg, Fern and Resia Passes. Nowadays it is a well-known event location and houses an interesting museum.
The Regional Museum (Heimatmuseum Landeck) illustrates the history of the region. Part of the museum is dedicated to the Baroque master builder Jakob Prandtauer, who was born in 1660 in the neighbouring village of Stanz bei Landeck: Hohenbrunn Castle and the Melk Abbey are among his works. He is known as "the Monastic Architect". Another area is dedicated to the "Swabian Children": 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. The museum offer is completed by two galleries: the Castle Gallery which exhibits above all contemporary arts, especially of local artists, and the Gallery in the Tower, where the main issue is the social and cultural identity in our lives.
