Kösslerhäusl Heritage Museum in Grossarl

Curious to know how a miner’s family lived back in the 16th century? How the people of those days cooked and slept? Well, the answers to these questions and more will be provided to you by the Kösslerhäusl Heritage Museum. The museum is open every Friday afternoon in summer.

Miner’s House
Kösslerhäusl Heritage Museum

The Kössler mining family lived at the Kösslerhäusl in the 16th century. This house certainly has a special role to play amongst the countless other museums in SalzburgerLand.

You see, this house isn’t a museum in the classic sense, with numerous exhibits. The entire Kösslerhäusl is an exhibit in its own right. The focus here has been on preserving a typical miner’s home of that period. To this point, they have succeeded in preserving this impressive wooden building in its original condition and at its original location.

It is impossible to pinpoint the exact age of the Kösslerhäusl, though the existence of the Kösslers, a mining family, has been documented back to the 16th century. In this building, the living space, storage areas and barn were all lumped together under one roof.

The Rauchkuchl, with its old, still-preserved cobalt stove and a wooden smoke vent, is just one of the highlights of this museum. On the upper floor, you will find an exhibition of antique farming tools and equipment:


  • Wooden plow
  • Wooden threshing machine
  • Old windmill
  • Equipment for harvesting hay and grain
  • Hoist
  • Carpenter’s screws

 

In the expanded cellar there is an exhibition room with a collection of around 2,000 knives, numerous old documents, folk costumes and musical instruments.
Traditional doughnuts at the Kösslerhäusl

The homemade, farmhouse-style doughnuts at the Kösslerhäusl are especially tasty. They are a specialty from Grossarltal made of yeast dough, based on a recipe right out of grandmother’s cookbook! Don’t just take our word for it, sample them for yourselves here at the Kösslerhäusl.

Every Friday afternoon in summer, farmers’ wives from Grossarltal bake fresh doughnuts for visitors. They taste best of all when eaten with apricot jam.
