Where history lives again
The Folklore Museum in Dietenheim near Bruneck lies in the heart of the Pustertal valley. It shows the environment of the everyday life of rural population of the past – from the landed gentry and the self-sustaining peasantry to the day labourers. The centrepiece is the baroque Mair am Hof residence with its stately rooms and ethnological collections. The appendant farm building houses numerous agricultural implements and vehicles.
The open-air site containing old, original farmhouses, craft workshops, farm gardens and domestic animals invites visitors to stay and recounts the everyday life of earlier times.
Who visits the museum in August can enjoy a varied programme of activities on four days a week.
The museum restaurant is closed.
Drinks, snacks and ice cream can be obtained in the entrance area. A picnic area is at your disposal. In the center of the village of Dietenheim there is a café with ice cream shop, which is within several minutes walking distance from the museum. Restaurants are located in the center of Bruneck, which can be reached in a few minutes by car or by public transport (the City-Bus stop is near the museum).
A unique experience for the whole family:
Three hectares of the green area invite to see translocated original farmhouses, craft workshops and cottage gardens.
Have fun playing at the games for children located in the area of the museum and at the historic bowling lane!
