Museum Kitzbuehel is located in the former 18th century urban grain silo. The buildings were renovated from 1995 until 1998 at which time they formed the museum. You walk through its historic walls that illustrate its different construction phases which extend from the Romantic period up until the 20th century. The Museum Kitzbuehel is not only defined by the region’s history and culture but also by the city’s political and economic centre. Mining, old crafts, daily life, religious faith and winter sports are just a few of the specific themes present in the museum’s exhibitions
One exhibition area of the museum is dedicated to Kitzbuehel’s famous artist Alfons Walde (1891 – 1958). His work, consisting of 60 paintings and more than 100 graphic art pieces, photography and drawings is displayed in the Sammlung Alfons Walde, which is approximately 250 sq m (2,691 sq ft) in size. The exhibition shows that Alfons Walde was not just a painter but also an architect, designer and graphic artist.
