Exhibition: The history of Stuben

On the occasion ot the 800th anniversary of the first written document of the region, the Friends of Hannes Schneider have realized an exhition in Stuben am Arlberg in 2018. The theme of the exhibition called  "The Emperor's last parlor- People and Stories" is the history of 200 years of living in Stuben am Arlberg. It is presented in pictures and short texts in German and English. The arc spans the history of the mountain village and begins with the quote from Joseph Ritter von Bergmann from 1868:

Right at the foot of the Arlberg lies the village and the postal station of Stuben with its 20 houses and 133 residents, known in common parlance as “the Emperor’s last parlor”.

While in 1800 the main industry was agricultural, carriage and road maintenance, in the course of the twentieth century the emphasis gradually shifted to tourism.
