A fascinating collection of old style houses, farm buildings. Unfortunately rain cut our visit short but we enjoyed the picturesque landscape and buildings. Easy to get to by public transport and included in Salzburg card.

You can enter many of the buildings, which include period home furnishings and farm equipment. Good explanations are in German...More

It was a nice day and we walked between the houses of the various Salzburg regions, most of them brought as-is...More
