With an area of 50 hectares (about 125 acres) and a 7km-long network of walks and hiking trails, the Open-Air Museum is Salzburg's largest museum, and one of the largest of its kind in Europe. More than 100 historical original buildings dating from over six centuries can be visited in this beautiful area – including farmhouses, mills, a private brewery, a grocer's shop, a smithy and a cobbler's workshop. All the buildings are set within a mosaic of flowering meadows, small ponds and shady woodland. Thus the site has a natural diversity equal to any in Europe, and has been declared a European nature reserve. The historical 2 km-long narrow-gauge railway is a special magnet for visitors. Special exhibitions and a variety of events are organised throughout the season.
