What a beautiful museum dedicated to some spectacularly breathtaking old vehicles. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. And we were lucky enough to go for a ride in some of these pieces of art. Make sure you visit the basement full of old beautiful tractors.

No doubt a very interesting place. Amazing old Daimler cars and Porsche tractors, Mercedes and a Packard!! The importance of Ferdinand Porsche in the history of car making. Go for it. Walking distance from Mattsee's main square. Buses available from and to Salzburg.
