Museum of the Bohemian Forest


„I showed you the forests and the villages, because history was being made there…“
(Adalbert Stifter)

Various exhibits in the Museum of the Bohemian Forest in Vienna (Austria) show the history and stories of a lost culture of the German speaking population in the Bohemian Forest, which has always been closely linked to ours.

Step into the homeland of Adalbert Stifter, still considered to be one of the most famous Austrian poets, discover well-known household effects, admire artistic textiles, browse through our comprehensive library, start tracing the roots of your family in old documents, picture postcards and chronicles or just travel back in time with old photographs or paintings. Enjoy your visit to our museum and to our website!
