Informationen zu Tourism Museum of the Upper Puster Valley

Niederdorf (Villabassa) is in the Upper Puster (Pusteria)Valley, which 150 years ago was the pioneer region in Tyrolean tourism. Beginning in 1871, it was easily accessible to residents of big cities via the Southern Railway of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The museum, housed in the Wasserman House, depicts a passage through time from the beginnings of tourism, for example the journey of the Bourbon, Isabella of Parma and her servants, who stayed at the Wassermann House in 1760, to the present, including the precursors of tourist institutions (old inns and numerous health spas), the construction of the railway in the Puster Valley, and the beginning of mountaineering in the region. In addition to topics of tourism, the museum also deals with subjects of local history, such as the collection miniature holy pictures from the Haus Wassermann. An Infopoint in the museum offers those interested the opportunity to study over 18,000 Tyrolean personalities.
