Kirchplatzl 154, 6105 Leutasch
The former Leutasch village school from 1950 now houses the Ganghofermuseum. Now, in the newly adapted classrooms, the life of the Bavarian writer Ludwig Albert Ganghofer, the traditional hunting in Leutasch and its long regional history are displayed.
Especially the variety of changing special exhibitions, the public library as well as various cultural events make the Ganghofermuseum in Leutasch regularly also a versatile meeting place.
Since December, the museum has also been home to a "Living Workshop": Hermann Klocker, passionate carver from Telfs, has set up his carving room on the 1st floor. There, interested museum visitors can look over his shoulder as he works and learn interesting facts about woods and their craftsmanship.
Ludwig Albert Ganghofer
Probably the most famous Bavarian writer, Ludwig Ganghofer spent more than 20 years most of his leisure time in his hunting lodge "Hubertus", not far from the Tilfussalm in the picturesque Gaistal. There he found inspiration for his most famous works, first and foremost of course "Das Schweigen im Walde". Many exhibits are directly related to the Bavarian author and his hunting lodge. However, the photographs on display are particularly noteworthy. As a nature and hunting lover, he was truly addicted to the mountains,
