Museums at Lake “Achensee”
Saint Notburga is still a much venerated personality in the local area for her awe-inspiring life and work. The humble maid, Notburga, who lived in the 13th century, dedicated her life to the poor and needy. The “Notburga” Museum in Eben/Maurach exhibits documents and items that familiarise the visitor with her life.
In the local area there are further museums, which are worth visiting, for example the “Achenseer Museumswelt” in Maurach, a museum which extends over 8 hectares, the “Sixenhof” Local History Museum, housed in a 650 year old farmhouse, and the museum of the legendary “Tiroler Steinöl” factory.
