About Rosegger Museum Krieglach

A small exhibition in the former country home of Peter Rosegger (1843–1918) in Krieglach traces the different stages in the life and work of the Styrian poet. The letters, documents, pictures and writings on display indicate that he was in close contact with many artists of his time.


These exhibits are presented in what used to be Rosegger’s private rooms—the house was built according to his designs in 1877. His study and the room where he died are on the first floor of the museum. They have been preserved in their original condition and convey an authentic impression of Rosegger’s lifestyle—which stood in great contrast to the living conditions of his birthplace. From being the child of an Alpine farmer he had climbed up the social ladder to become a successful and financially independent author.
