Pfahlbau (pile dwellings)

The prehistoric findings on Lake Attersee

In the districts Seewalchen, Attersee and Mondsee you can visit the new information centers presenting the UNESCO World Heritage Prehistoric Pile Dwellings of the Northern Alps. The entrance to the pile dwelling pavilions is free. There you will find the answer to the question why these archaeological discoveries have been declared an UNESCO World Heritage.

The pavilions show the history of the dwellers of these palafitte, which today are situated way below the surface of the lake. The most frequently asked questions will be answered, regarding the 6.000 years old sunken villages.

The three pavilions show different perspectives which complement  one another and make you want to visit all three sites.
A walk to the pavilions can be combined with a visit to the palafitte museum in Mondsee or to the regional museums in Vöcklabruck and Schörfling, where some original findings from settlements of the New Stone Age and of the Bronze Age are exposed.

Guided visits to the pavilions can be booked in the tourist board at Lake Attersee and Lake Mondsee.
