The Sandhof Inn, some 28 km from the Hotel Erzherzog Johann, was the home of the Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Hofer, where a museum now links the local rural traditions of the Passeier valley with historically significant events.
A wide-ranging exhibition brings the events of the Napoleonic era to life through the story of Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Hofer. The folklore section shows rural traditions, ranging from expressions of popular piety to traditional medicines, as well as various local arts and crafts such as furniture and traditional costumes. A detailed, first-hand insight into rural life is also offered by the outdoor mountain farm.
