Museum HochQuellenWasser

The museum, located in the noble 17th century mansion that once belonged to the owner of a hammer mill, is devoted to the history of water supply and to the achievements in constructing the Vienna spring water pipeline which was of significant importance for the water supply of city.

Since 1910 the Hochschwabregion feeds the Austrian capital with 217,000 cubic meters drinking water daily. The SpringWater Museum documents how the second Vienna spring water line was built and illustrates the city’s water supply. Interactive multimedia displays provide insights in major aspects of the region’s geology and the protection of springs.

The museum of local history primarily deals with the largest trade union of Innerberg based in Wildalpen which managed a charcoal production unit to provide energy for the local iron-working industries between 1625 and 1838.
