The local poet Peter Rosegger was born on July 31 1843 at the Kluppeneggerhof. The farm is located 1,155 m above sea level in the middle of the idyllic forest home and is still only accessible for visitors by foot / bike. The house where he was born is now a museum and gives an insight into simple rural life in the 19th century.
