The wine growing tradition goes back to the Middle Ages and was first mentioned in 1338. 1582 the then village received a market right and developed huge wealth through growing and trading wine. 1910 a first municipal museum was established, 1978 it was reopened in the city´s old almshouse. 2013 the Lower Austria Provincial Exhibition took place in Poysdorf, 4 million Euros were invested in the enlargement and renovation of the museums area. In April 2014 a new designed permanent exhibition was reopened with the name Vino Versum Poysdorf.BuildingsThe main building is a former almshouse, built in 1653. 1664 a baroque chapel, dedicated to St. Barbara, was added.

  • Fun enough also focused on the history of region.
  • Very friendly and helpful staff. In almost 2 hours we were through. Outdoors we couldn't see everything because a wedding was taking place. Through the audio guide via the mobile phone we have received a lot of information. Highly recommended.
