When horsepower began to roll
Seppenbauer Automobile Museum – the dream of driving
It is probably a one-of-a-kind collection: At Gerhard Porsche’s Automobile Museum, which adjoins Wirtshaus Seppenbauer, absolutely everyone will become an automobile fan. Each individual piece tells a piece of motorized history, from the infancy of the automobile to the “Rockin’ Fifties”, and soon all the way up to the present day. As the perfect complement to the existing museum, housed in a lovingly restored barn, directly accessible from Gasthof Seppenbauer, a new wing will be added in May, right across the way, with plenty of room for contemporary examples of horsepower raised to beautiful perfection. Even the collection as it is today is one of the best that fans of autos and design can marvel at here in Austria: Extraordinary collector’s pieces, from Rolls Royces to Bentleys and, of course, Porsches, along with a unique collection of Vespas and motorbikes. And even an original prototype of the last flight-capable Albatros D3 airplane.
The fact that the dream of driving continues to this day is demonstrated clearly in a new, modern section of the museum bathed in natural light, in which some 20 agricultural vehicles and 20 historic sports cars will be presented, as will 15 new racing and sports cars. Highlights: a Red Bull Formula 1 car, the Red Bull Paris-Dakar Touarek, a Jochen Rindt race Porsche 906 and also the one-of-a-kind Model 904 Porsche of Gerhard Porsche himself. The exhibits are regularly rotated, while special exhibitions are also planned.
We have more than 150 different pieces on display in our exhibitions – the widest range of vehicles imaginable, from the start of motorization to today.
