Exhibitions in Mürzzuschlag

In Mürzzuschlag, at the foot of the Semmering mountains, these exhibitions offer a unique cultural programme. The Brahms Museum, Kunsthaus Muerz, SÜDBAHN Museum and WinterSportMuseum offer cultural delights that will provide an unforgettable experience for 21st-century visitors, too. Names such as Johannes Brahms, Peter Rosegger, Carl Ritter von Ghega, Toni Schruf and Max Kleinoschegg are inseparably connected with Mürzzuschlag and Styria. At the Brahms Museum, you can immerse yourself in the works and life of the important composer Johannes Brahms. The Kunsthaus Muerz displays contemporary art in the fields of music, literature, visual arts, architecture and multimedia disciplines. The Kunsthaus Muerz primarily focuses on contemporary art in the fields of music, literature, visual arts and architecture. At the SÜDBAHN Museum, you can follow the historical tracks of the Semmering Railway. Under the leadership of Carl Ritter von Ghega, this first high-mountain railway was built between 1848 and 1854. In 1998, it was the first railway line in the world to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’re sure to have a sporty day at the WinterSportMuseum, where you can admire one of the world’s most important and largest collections in the field of skiing and winter sports! Tip: The museums’ children’s trails, with characters ‘Toni the Snow Hare’ and ‘Loko-Lieschen’, provide interesting information about winter sports and railways in an understandable way and invite younger visitors to get involved and try things out.

Three museums and the Kunsthaus

Only a few minutes’ walk away from each other, visitors have access to three museums as well as one event centre and art space. Take some time to let us tell you more about the ‘Mürzzuschlager’ Symphony during a guided tour through the Brahms Museum. Admire the Kunsthaus Muerz event centre, which was originally a church and has since been modernised. Take a break with some coffee and cake in the k.u.k. ‘café carriage’ at the SÜDBAHN Museum, or be surprised at the WinterSportMuseum when you learn how and why the first international skiing race in Central Europe was held right here in Mürzzuschlag.

Every object in this museum speaks to our personal lives and above all our collective history – to our region’s collective memory and development and to our local culture of winter sports.
