Schloss Lerchen

As a peaceful fixture amidst the busy old town, Schloss Lerchen was documented as early as 1289. The castle has been home to the city’s museum of local history since 1985.

The visitor gets an idea of where our region’s charm and character stems from by experiencing a survey of the city’s history, the peasant wars, the emergence of the farming-citizenry, and sacred art.

Several historically recreated workshops display tools and artisanry. Further emphasis is put on the geological conditions of the surroundings as well as on Radstadt’s famous composer and organist Paul Hofhaimer.
Above all, Radstadt is especially proud of its civil-guard and other cultural associations - traditions that live to this day.

Capuchin Tower

Another part of the museum is situated in the so called "Kapuzinerturm" along the mediavel wall of Radstadt was built in 1534 and adapted new in 2014.
The focus is on the "Farmer´s war" in 1525/1526. Via multimedia the visitor will be involved into this epoch.
