One of the most popular excursion destinations in the Tyrol

Discover the Museum of Tyrolean Farmhouses situated in the midst of the Kramsach Lake Plateau on a leisurely walk. Thanks to its exceptional setting, a visit to this open air museum is an outdoor adventure and a refreshing outing for the whole family. A visit is like a travel through time to days of old. 14 farms and 23 outbuildings bear witness to past days in the various Tyrolean valleys.

The difference between an art gallery and this museum is that you can walk into the exhibited objects and learn about and experience them with all your senses. Standing in the small rooms with their rough carpentry you can feel history come alive and sense the magic of the past.
