Folklore Museum

The Hellbrunner Monatsschlösschen, which was built in 1615 for Archbishop Markus Sittikus - as its name suggests - within the record time of only a month, today houses the folklore museum of the Salzburg Museum.

The manor, idyllically situated overlooking Hellbrunn Park, houses a collection of regional folklore with objects of popular customs and piety, furnishings, popular medicine and a number of beautiful Trachten (traditional costumes) worn in the Salzburg valley regions. There are annual special exhibitions during summer.

Visitors follow a walking path from Hellbrunn park, through a romantic forest and up to the folk museum, which is situated on an idyllic hill - offering a splendid view on Hellbrunn palace and Hohensalzburg Fortress.

Though small in size, the museum features remarkable folk exhibitions, reaching from farmer's furnitures and religious paintings to works of traditional customs and is definitely worth a visit if you are interested in folk culture.
