Since 1946

The historical vault of the ‘New Residence’ – built between 1584 and 1601 – has been home for the Salzburger Heimatwerk since 1946. The Heimatwerk is a trading operation and an organiser of cultural events, its main aim being to encourage traditional folk customs to flourish in the region. In particular, this involves the maintenance, cultivation and development of traditions handed down via regional Tracht clothing, customs and creative artisanry.

Mastery of the skills and crafts that reflect respect for tradition and modernity can be seen in the Heimatwerk workshop, in the Dirndl dresses and Tracht clothing produced according to the wishes and requirements of customers. At the Heimatwerk store customers can purchase noble, hand-printed and finely hand-woven fabrics, silk, course linen and exquisite designer goods, and leather clothing.

The historical cellar vault hosts numerous limited period exhibitions, and is always worth a visit. Salzburger Heimatwerk is also responsible for organising the ‘Salzburger Adventsingen’ in the large festival hall. It is one of the most important events displaying traditional culture in the whole of the alpine region.
