The “tea-room”, which takes its inspiration from courtly reception rooms, is a very special location within the museum. The ensemble of two small rooms invites visitors to take a seat and immerse themselves in a “miniature replica” of Heidi Goëss-Horten’s world. The Salzburg artist Markus Schinwald was commissioned with the room’s artistic design. Hans Kupelwieser designed a red velvet relief for the ceiling. More about the Tea Room...
