Special exhibition "Mountain world"

Alpinism and the beginnings of tourism
The alpine exploration of the Salzburg Alps, the Stone Sea and the mountains around Saalfelden in particular only began in the 1970s and 1980s. The Schönfeldspitze (formerly Hochzink) had already been climbed in 1830 by Friedrich Fürst Schwarzenberg, the future archbishop, with the theology professor Peter Carl Thurwieser, but this remained an isolated case. It was not until the railway (from 1875) and the tourism that began as a result brought the mountains into the general consciousness of the population. So they were quickly climbed all around and also developed for tourism. In contrast to other up-and-coming tourist resorts (such as the spa town of Zell am See), mountain tourists and mountain hikers came to Saalfelden as guests. In addition, however, the mountains were previously important pastures, border crossings that were difficult to control or inspiration for artists. The special exhibition "Mountain World of Life" focuses on the importance of the mountains for the residents of Saalfelden and the different "uses".
