Local Museum Kals am Grossglockner

The local museum of Kals tells about bygone times and the highest mountain of Austria.

The old school building of Kals am Grossglockner houses the local museum which is dedicated to the life in the Kalser valley. Life was hard, nature was adamant. The exhibited objects allow us to guess how simple and sparse life was here in former times.

Photographs, tools, coins but also musical instruments as well as the old church clock of Kals or an ancient "Russkuchl" kitchen can be admired in the museum. A part of the museum of course is dedicated to the highest mountain of Austria, the Grossglockner (3,798 m a.s.l.). It was climbed in 1800 for the first time and has always been a famous destination among alpinists. Which equipment was used then and how the alpine guides brought the guests on the mountain - all this can be also experienced in the museum.

Opposite of the Local Museum Kals am Grossglockner, in the Glocknerhaus, the permanent exhibition "Under the spell of the Grossglockner" can be visited with a combined ticket.

Currently, access may be subject to certain restrictions.
