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.
The Christmas market in the city centre offers visitors the ability to buy at one of the 60 market stalls innovative presents. Furthermore, the market presents live music of choirs, soul and gospel ensembles, theatre, an ice rink, pony riding, and a Christmas tree with more than 20,000 lights!
