An Austrian friend that I met at WordCamp Europe in Vienna, Stefan, told me that I had to go to this car museum when I was in the Salzburg area in Austria. He wasn’t wrong!
This is a fantastic museum for OLD cars, mainly Austro Daimlers, that Ferdinand Porsche was involved in to a varying degree.
They have cars from 1901, an electrical hybrid car, Jacob Lohner Model Mixte, all they way up to the Second World War with a KDF-wagen from 1938. Also cars from Steyer, Rauch & Lang, Wanderer, and VolksWagen. They also have a tractor museum in the basement with newer models. See the last images in the gallery below, the orange one with a fairing is amazing!

One of the highlights of all my 2 weeks trip in Austria, Hungary, and Germany was when Ernst Piëch, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, himself showed me around for 15 minutes! You can see him next to the black car that used to belong to the Swedish Royal Court.
Personally I have to rate this 5 Stars. If you have been here go and rate it at Google, Yelp or TripAdvisor.
