A pice of local history at Huber Hus
See life back then
What was life on the Arlberg like in earlier centuries? Huber Hus in Lech attempts to recreate a time of trouble and destitution, of hard work and small joys. This house near the church was built in the 16th century. It was last owned by the Huber family and has been managed as a walk-in museum since 2004.
About the museum Huber Hus
The construction time of this house was dated back to around 1590 on the basis of wood scrap, making it the oldest dated building on the Tannberg. The kitchen is likely the oldest part of the house and must’ve also been built in the late 16th century. Like all other living and workrooms, it was diligently reconstructed true to the original. Beyond the kitchen you can take a look inside the parlour, the side room and the cooper workshop, which at least partially dates back to the 19th century, with various exhibits. Household effects and furniture are mostly from the last owners. Housekeeper Maria Konzett-Pircher, given right of abode by the last Huber brothers, even lived here until the year 2000.
There a second Tannberg house next to Huber Hus. The original core of Wang Hus – its name originated from the location on a small plain directly at the Sonnenhang – likely dates back to the late 15th or early 16th century. It was later extended into a mountain farming estate. Abandoned in 1838 and left to decay, Lech bought the property, gave it its old glory and opened it to the public in 1998.
