The Seelackenmuseum in St. Veit

History, Mining & Archaeology, Rural Life and Thomas Bernhard

52,67 km from Salzburg Residence Palace

Come with us on a 4000-year journey of discovery to the first settlements, Bronze Age cemeteries and the mines of the Middle Ages. Find out what spoons from America have to do with the expulsion of Protestants and why Thomas Bernhard wrote "Die Kälte. Eine Isolation" in St. Veit!

There is a lot to discover, especially for children: How can you reuse a Christmas tree? What did people 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 why did the Romans leave a lamp here?

The Seelackenmuseum is part of the Ore of the Alps UNESCO Global Geopark within the museum association Museumsverein St. Veit and offers exciting insights for young and old with its focus on history, mining & archaeology, rural life and Thomas Bernhard.

Situated in the spa park, the ensemble consists of the Wallner farmhouse, a water mill, grainery, farmer"s garden and a bee showcase. The oasis of peace with a Kneipp facility and the children"s playground round off the offer.
