The Seelackenmuseum in St. Veit

4000-year journey of discovery to the first settlements

52,67 km from Salzburg Residence Palace

Come along on a 4000-year journey of discovery to the first settlements, Bronze Age cemeteries and the mines of the Middle Ages and learn how Archbishop Firmian made himself unpopular and why Thomas Bernhard wrote "The Cold. An Isolation" was written here!

Especially for children there is a lot to discover: How can you reuse a Christmas tree? What did one do when it was too cold in winter to go outside to the outhouse? How does a stone become copper for a euro coin? And what did our ancestors use the metal for?

The Seelacken Museum is part of the UNESCO Ore of the Alps Geopark and offers exciting insights for young and old with its focus on history & archaeology, rural life and Thomas Bernhard. We offer continuous guided tours in German and English to our exhibitions during opening hours. Situated in the spa park, the ensemble consists of the Wallner farmhouse, the Seelacken mill, a granary, farmer"s garden and bee showcase. The rest oasis with pub facilities and the children"s playground complete the offer.
