Local Museum Paarhof Buacher

Exhibition: The Rätikon

The mountain range with its peaks, glorious first ascents and the stories around the refuges is the subject of the current exhibition at the Paarhof Buacher local history museum. It starts with an introduction to the history and development of the mountain huts in the Rätikon. The Douglasshütte receives special attention here. It is the best-known hut in the Rätikon and has an eventful history of destruction and reconstruction. The peaks of the Rätikon then become the subject of discussion, as no other mountain range of this size has so many peaks named. In total, there are over 300 that bear a name. A place in the exhibition is also dedicated to those courageous people who have succeeded in a large number of first ascents in the Rätikon. The stories of old pioneers such as Toni Hiebeler and Emanuel Strubich are just as much a part of it as representatives of current times, including Beat Kammerlander. But the equipment with which the mountaineers climbed their goals is not comparable. This is impressively demonstrated by the exhibits, which can be seen in direct comparison in the adjacent room. Here the knickerbockers and the loden coat stand next to the breathable functional clothing and the two-metre-long wooden skis next to waisted carving skis.
