Preserve, explore and mediate your homeland.
The "Feldbacher Tabor" was built in the second half of the 15th century around the church of the southeast Styrian town Feldbach as a weir. The wall carried battlements and was broken by embrasures. On the inside eleven small, two- to three-storey so-called "Gaden" or "Taborhäuschen" with vaulted cellar, living rooms, storage and stable were created. During the great Feldbach witch trial (1673-1675), the Tabor served as a prison for those accused of witchcraft. After forfeiting its defensive function in the 18th century, the "Taborhäuschen" were used for school and storage rooms, magazines and vegetable and ice cellars.
Museum in the Tabor
As it used to be.
Finally, on 18. May 1952, a museum was opened in the Tabor, which has been maintained since 1985 by the Southeast Styrian Association for Local History in cooperation with the municipality. In the following decades, the museum was continually expanded. Today it takes almost the entire structure and houses in more than 40 rooms various departments that allow visitors large and small to discover life in the past.
