Beehive at an old house in Salzburg in winter

A traditional beehive at an old farmhouse in Salzburg. Obviously, beehives like this are generally not in use in Austria anymore. We took this picture because we liked the motive, but there is relatively little to say about beehives in general or this one in particular. Thus, let us say a few words about traditional farming practices: If you are interested in things like that, note the Salzburg Museum and its branch on folk culture, the Volkskundemuseum im Monatsschlössl; by far the best place nearby will be the open-air museum of Großgmain with dozens of traditional farm houses from all over the province of Salzburg. The museum makes a great day-trip from Salzburg.
