Description

Exhibition and inspection

The Walser Museum is a village museum that deals with the history, customs and life of the Walser people of Triesenberg as well as with the history of the parish of the village. The collection presents old objects from the reality of life of the former villagers.

In a 25-minute multivision show, visitors get an insight into the life and history of the Walser community. On the ground floor there is also a permanent exhibition of wooden sculptures by the artist Rudolf Schädler.

Walserhaus

The Walser Museum also owns a 400-year-old Walser house south of the cemetery. The 19th century living culture is exhibited here.

Historical Information

Foundation of the museum

The Walser Museum was founded in 1961 as a museum of local history by the then Triesenberg priest Engelbert Bucher. Since 1980 it has been housed in a building next to the Hotel Kulm in the village centre of Triesenberg.

The Triesenberg Walsers

In the Middle Ages, the Walsers settled from the German part of the Swiss Valais in various areas in an easterly or southerly direction, for example in Italian Piedmont or Valle d'Aosta. At the end of the 13th century the Walsers came to Triesenberg. Testimony of this is still the highestemannic dialect, the Walser dialect, which is still spoken here today.
