The women’s museum in Hittisau is the only one of its kind in Austria and makes artistic creation by women and their living environments visible in changing exhibitions. The museum is accommodated in a modern timber building in the village centre. For a long time, mountaineering was a male domain. The exhibition showcases pioneering female alpinists of the 19th and 20th centuries. At the same time, it directs attention to women who have always lived and worked in the mountains: high-alpine farming women, herdswomen, female poachers, smugglers and mountain guides.
Gustav is a new entrant among the trade fairs held at the Dornbirn fair precinct. The organisers want to create time and space for good taste. One main theme will be devoted to upmarket artisanry, another one will focus on agricultural produce, food and semi-luxuries.
