Rattling, clattering, rushing and roaring – this is the sound of the 19th century when flax industry reached its peak in the Ötztal. Flax was said to be the valley‘s gold. Discover history close-by at the outdoor museum. Saw, mill, scutch and flax breaker are driven by the rushing waters of Lehnbach brook.

Time traveling can be so easy as soon as you enter one of the ten authentic buildings with all their original furniture. Among the attractions ranks Tirol‘s oldest wooden chest and a myriad of working tools. One of the unique farmhouses hosts the precious Memory Archives displaying even the smallest detail about the Ötztal and its inhabitants. Long past memories, modern funds of knowledge, future expectations. Various texts, images, audio and film documentations give an insight into Ötztal‘s life and work, its secrets and roots. Not without reason the Ötztal Dialect was declared a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Author’s recommendation

Afterwards, visit the Lehner waterfall.
