Last updated on April 8th, 2020 at 06:49 am

The Tyrolean Farmhouse Museum in Kramsach invites visitors to travel back in time to the Middle Ages on 22 and 23 June. Living history groups will demonstrate everyday life from the Late Middle Ages.

For two days visitors will experience the daily life of a household from that time. The historical farmhouses will be brought back to life once the performers move in.

“Visitors will be able to taste the scents of historical delicacies and take a look over our shoulder at various handicraft activities. We are looking forward to sharing information about this exciting age,” reveals Eva-Maria Mair, the initiator of the Medieval Days. Children in particular are invited to “grasp” the story with all their senses.

Around 16 performers give an impression of how the everyday life of monks, farmers and craftsmen was shaped in the 13th and 14th centuries, what clothes they wore and what worries and needs this time brought with it.

A particular emphasis is placed on fashion from this period. At the colourful fashion show, visitors can get to know the clothes of the different stands and have a chuckle at fashion mistakes of that time.

“The guided tour through the centuries also reveals all kinds of exciting details about the life of medieval people,” says Mair. Various craftsmen show their skills in long-forgotten professions. The historical hustle and bustle around the grounds of the Ötztaler Hof begins at 09.30 each day.
