Museum Passeier in St. Leonhard

The museum at the Sandhof, the place of birth of Andreas Hofer is telling vividly and enjoyable how the bearded innkeeper and cattle trader became the Tyrolean hero. The constant exhibition "Helden & Wir" is drawing a line to the heroes of today. In the outdoor area there is a "Haufenhof" (heap yard) which is typical for the Passeier. The exhibition "Miër Psairer" offers a quick introduction into the dialect of the valley and the character of the people here.

A new free audio-guide (only in German) presents a fictitious tale about the Baroque Passeirer school of painting.
