Baking oven of the Waldviertlerhof

Lower Austria

Built: 19th century
Year of translocation: 1971

This oven built of “Weinsberg“ granite stands somewhat remote from the farmstead. As the process of baking bread required a temperature between 250 and 300 degrees centigrade, baking ovens, (due to the risk of fire, but also due to the heat being unwelcome in summertime), were always built outside the farmhouse. The “Brachhuber“ baking oven is constructed in such a way that the side walls of the oven and the medium-steep “roof“ protrude above the heating opening. Thus, the oven fire was protected from the wind and weather.
