Regular demonstrations give you the chance to rediscover old trades: delicate crafts, such as lace-making, spinning yarn or jewellery design, alongside more everyday, physically demanding trades, for example the work of a copper-smith, cooper, baker, grindstone maker or carpenter.As part of a special exhibition you can also learn about the phenomenon of the “Sommerfrischler”. These were artists and wealthy people who decided to discover the rural life for themselves around the end of the 19th century. The idea of “Sommerfrische” - which means something like “summer retreat” - was very popular at the time amongst those that could afford an extended country holiday. But how did the locals react to the arrival of the European high nobility and upper classes here for their summer retreat? Find out the answer – and a great deal more – in the open-air museum Glentleiten!
