Women past and present

On a visit to Schwarzenberg we'll admire the heritage-listed buildings around the village square and meet the world famous baroque painter Angelika Kauffmann in the local museum dedicated to her life and work.

At the Women’s Museum in Hittisau you’re in for a fascinating encounter with women and their involvement in and contributions to culture, whereas at the 'Juppen Workshop' in Riefensberg, dedicated to this amazing women’s traditional dress, you’ll find out more about the making of its up to 500 pleats and gold-embroidered breastpiece – the 'Juppe' is considered to be the oldest and most valuable traditional costume in Central Europe.
