About the exhibition

Taking a journey through time throughout Austria’s provinces, the 100 or so historical rural buildings of the Austrian Open-Air Museum Stübing tell fascinating stories of building, living, working, and celebrating – the life of the rural population in former times. Thematically the main focus in 2019 is on the farmer’s working year, its customs, festivities and celebrations. Hard work, and the way it was structured by customs and festivities, ensured a balanced relationship between tough daily existence and leisure. This interplay – for example, during harvest-time, in the spinning rooms, or the practice of driving cattle up and down the mountains, as well as the mainly church-based customs throughout the year – is illustrated for visitors in this special exhibition. The interactive show for both young and old located on the museum grounds is added to by special events and educational programmes. The start is celebrated on May 19th, 2019 at the large Stübinger Kirtag (Stübing Fair).
