A visit to the Achental Local Heritage Museum, which was lovingly restored in 1984, calls to mind the Tirolean rural life of yesteryear. Take a walk into time long past… The house, a typical Tirolean “Einhof” farmstead in Achenkirch, offers visitors glimpses of life as it was lived through six centuries. Personal and domestic belongings — furniture, kitchen ware, clothing and textiles, agricultural implements and artefacts relating to hunting, fishing, timber industry, firefighting and Achensee Lake shipping are on view in 21 rooms spread over three storeys.In 2018, Sixenhof hosts the special exhibition "Ludwig Rainer and Achensee Lake". This exhibition tells the story of singer Ludwig Rainer, the famous offspring of the Original Rainer Family Singers from Zillertal Valley and how he helped spread “Silent Night! Holy Night!” throughout the world 200 years ago. Exhibits include the original trunk where Ludwig Rainer stored his clothes.
