Ganghofer Museum and Library

Ludwig Ganghofer (1855 – 1920), one of the best known folk culture writers of his era, spent many weeks each year in his hunting house 'Hubertus' near the Tillfuß Alpine pasture in Leutasch’s Gaistal Valley. It was there that he wrote, among other works, 'Silence in the Forest,' one of his best known novels. He also played host to many personalities from the world of art and culture, such as Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Richard Strauss. The income from his novels permitted Ganghofer to lease one of the largest hunting reserves in the northern Alps, the 'Gaistaljagd.' Opening times: Tuesday and Wednesday 10.00 am - 12.00 am, Thursday and Friday 4.00 pm - 6.00 pm For further appointments: Tel. +43 676/6056184
