Welcome to the Silent Night Museum Arnsdorf!
Franz Xaver Gruber was a teacher, sacristan and organist in Arnsdorf for 21 years. The school and sacristan's house was built in 1771. Gruber created the melody to Silent Night in this historically significant building. The ground floor is still a school today and the first floor, where Gruber lived, is now a museum. The teacher's desk in the old classroom dates back to his time - perhaps he composed Silent Night on it? The Circulare, an original circular in Gruber's handwriting, contains the new school regulations following the incorporation of Salzburg into Austria.
The pictures in the classroom tell the story of Gruber's life and shed light on the background to the creation of the famous melody Silent Night.
In the Rauchkuchl, you have to listen to what the walls tell you! This is where everyday life took place.
The beautifully carved nativity figures are displayed in a separate room. They date back to Gruber's time and still fulfil their function in the pilgrimage church next door: Maria im Mösl. Gruber has already played the organ there.
The temporary exhibition room is used for special exhibitions. Currently - until the end of 2024: Axel Corti. Arnsdorf was his place of retreat and he is buried in the local cemetery.
