The Farmhouse Museum in the historic Biedermann House in Schellenberg shows the way of life and living culture of the inhabitants of Liechtenstein around 1900. The house itself is almost 500 years old and therefore of special historical importance.
The museum is open from April to October on the first and last Sunday of the month from 14.00 to 17.00.
The Biedermann House
The Farmhouse Museum on the Eschnerberg is housed in one of the oldest wooden houses in Liechtenstein, dating from 1518. The so-called Biedermann House is a testimony to the late medieval settlement building in the Principality of Liechtenstein. It is so called because it was inhabited by the Biedermann family from 1814 to 1964.
Since the house was owned by the tenant of the property, it was dismantled and rebuilt several times at different locations, for example in 1687 and 1793/94. During the last relocation, the previous flat saddle roof was converted into a steeper roof. From 1991 to 1993 the house was moved again to prevent demolition.
Foundation of the Farmhouse Museum
Since 1993, the house has been under a preservation order, and in 1994 the Farmhouse Museum was opened as a branch of the Liechtenstein National Museum Liechtensteinisches Landesmuseum.
