Really nice welcome however the content was a bit limited. Some interesting history re the development of the area and Zell am Zee, skis, boots and local natural resources. Very intersting Joanna Lumly lookalike displaying local costume!

Schloss Goldegg! In the beginning thought just a little normal castel as others but in the end find out the interesting protestant religions people escape from catholic to usa & Germany in 18th centery. Such amazing dark religions history. Its not a big place just take 60 mins to enjoy it.

What a charming little museum with so much interesting information on the way country people used to live. The perfect place to go when weather is unstable. Very friendly museum staff.
