Ruhpolding Travel Tip:
Woodcutters Museum, Ruhpolding
The relationship between mankind and the forest is the focal point of the Ruhpolding Woodcutters Museum. Life-size scenes transport visitors into the very midst of the world in which the woodcutters once worked. The forest as a source of energy, as a material and a tool – and its use and usage through the course of history, are portrayed in display cases and on information boards in a way that is visually very appealing.
A very special feature is the spaciously designed open-air section of the museum. A variety of forestry huts and woodcutters cabins, which would otherwise have fallen into total disrepair, were brought there. On display in the big transportation shed are the traditional
Ziehschlitten sleds that were once used to carry heavy loads, as well as a variety of rope-and-pulley systems. Visitors to the grounds can also view a charcoal kiln and a saltwater extraction system.
Hours: Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 5pm.
Admission: Adults 3.50 €, Children 1.50 €.
