The Open-Air Museum

The open-air museum was built from 1981 to 1987, thanks to the untiring efforts of Alois Amann, who had succeeded his ancestors in the saw milling and mill grinding trades. Preserved for posterity, a historic waterwheel-driven sawmill and flour-mill are preserved in their original sizes and romantic surroundings. A showcase with diagrams offers historical information about the trades quarter of the town of Hohenems. In addition, the exhibit shows a collection of more than 30 tools and implements relating to the sawmill and flour-mill industries, as well as the running wheels of Pelton-, Kaplan- and Francis-turbines used in modern hydroelectric power plants.
