Local Museum Ebensee - meeting of history and culture

Ebensee, Oberösterreich , Österreich

Ebensee - a village with a long and impressive history. Founded in 1604 as a salt production site, the company "Saline",  were built in the centre of Ebensee. Today´s museum was at that time the seat of the saltworks administration. Till today, salt reduction and production characterises the entire "Salzkammergut". In 1607 the pipeline between "Halstatt" and "Ebensee" was built to transport brine between this two locations. This pipeline is the oldest one in the world.
Ebensee has deloved a wide range of traditions - you can get you know some of these beautfiul traditions in the museum. The construction of the cable car to the Feuerkogel, which was the first one in Austria, brought many challenges and hurdles with it.
Under the title "Homeland - Heaven and Hell" the modern museum Ebensee deals with the history of women, men and children who hied here or who had to leave their old homeland due to economic hardship, religious persecution or in search of new challenges. All in all we definitely recommend to visit the museum of ebensee - it is worth seeing.
