Owner description: The Salzburg Open-air Museum in Grossgmain is located on the outskirts of Salzburg in the heart of an enchanting natural landscape. With the historic museum´s narrow-gauge railway you experience a marvellous ride through the 50 hectars of grounds. A network of upkept hiking trails connects about 100 original buildings constructed over the last six centuries. Explore the old farmhouses, be amazed by the simple but nevertheless diverse life of earlier times and enjoy the hospitality in the cosy museum tavern!

We only had a few hours but could easily have spent the entire day - the September 2013 Sunday we had there. It was a fluke for us, a last minute decision to extend our Austrian weekend by a few more hours. I could have stayed in this setting forever - beautiful buildings, fascinating crafts being created, good food, good beer. Most enjoyable time and well worth it if you have the opportunity to experience this place. Had been to an open air museum similar to this in the Black Forest but have to say this one is even more amazing.

A really interesting and beautiful place, just half an hour's bus ride from the city. They have collected and reconstructed farmhouses and other agricultural and rural buildings from all over the region, and have furnished them appropriately. Really fascinating glimpse into the past. Good restaurant and when we got a bit foot-weary there was the little train to take us back to the entrance. Everywhere was clean. The scenery was fabulous and everyone was so pleasant. We only saw half the buildings, so will definitely go back another time.

Plan to do some hiking if you want to see all with outstanding Museum has to offer! The staff is exceptional, especially the gift shop owner! Bring a picnic lunch if you want, plenty of picnic tables to relax at (not to mention several clean and FREE restrooms!). There is a train that will drop you off at the different locations if you do not want to walk the entire site. All of the homes and other buildings are accessible and rooms are decorated in the proper decor. On each home is a photo of what the home looked like back when it was still being used and the dates it was constructed and information in both German and English. We absolutely loved our morning here, highly recommended! The gift shop has local crafts at VERY reasonable prices.

I wasn't sure how this would be, but in fact the multitude of farmhouses and other buildings from the past four centuries was a fascinating look back at life before electricity. It's also a good place to take kids on a long hike.

A serious walk and climb! They are building a trainrail, ready summer 2010, so one can halt at the different sections. One can follow the 'yellow brick road', or one can follow the 'erlebnispad' is a much longer trail, but woirth while! One ends up at the same spots, but walks the travellerpath, in that way one is able to see views to die for (which the 'yellow brick road' walkers will never see...
