Industrial Tourism Attractions in Austria

The Haslach Textile Centre

Located under the roof of the historical building of a textile factory, the Textile Centre Haslach is a cooperation of 5 partners, who want to further develop the textile tradition of the Mühlviertel region. As their focuses are different, many and varied synergies arise between the poles of the museum, production, training and art.

Indigo Printing, Steinberg 

It revolutionized Europe's textile industry in the 17th century, when thousands of companies were founded. Nowadays, this handcraft is only practiced by two printers in Burgenland, in a workshop where everything is old except the designs. The Koó family  cooperates with artists and fashion designers to experiment with fabrics such as silk, wool and linen. And they burst with pride, when, for example, the Japanese-Austrian design partnership Rosa Mosa produced a leather shoe collection decorated with their indigo print for New York and Tokyo.


Is a small village in the Salzkammergut region, famous for its salt production.

The wealth accumulated from the salt industry transformed it into a glamorous baroque village. Visit Hörnerwerk cavern's subterranean salt lake and see the prehistoric man preserved in salt.
