Waggerl Haus Museum

at the Kirchboden in Wagrain

Karl Heinrich Waggerl is considered one of the most significant poets and writers of Austria. In his former place of activity, guests of today’s museum can embark on a literary journey to former times.

Follow the tracks of the great Salzburg poet and writer K. H. Waggerl on a guided culture walk or during a reading at his former place of activity.

 

The highly gifted writer was born in 1897 in Bad Gastein. After his return from war imprisonment in Italy in 1920, he accepted a teaching position in Wagrain. Three years later, Waggerl retreated from teaching due to a chronic lung disease and took up writing.

Over seven million copies of Waggerl’s books were sold and his work was translated into over a dozen languages. His most famous works are the novels “Brot” (“Bread”), “Schweres Blut” (“Heavy Blood”) and “Mütter” (“Mothers”). Today, in his former place of activity in Kirchboden in Wagrain, the Waggerl Haus Museum can be found..
