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.
In the Angelika-Kauffmann hall, with its lovely panoramic views into the surrounding nature, star-studded artists will perform chamber music, lieder evenings, piano recitals, readings and hold master courses.
During this three-day event you can get to know the region's special charm. For participants who don't yet have much experience of historic rallies there is a one-day course which prepares you very well for what the rally has in store.
