Lonely Planet review
A double act that combines with one of Austria’s most unusual and refreshing museums, the Museum for Sanitary Objects , the K-Hof museum complex gives a fascinating insight into the history of the region. The exhibition covers ceramics manufacture (for which Gmunden was famous in its early years), salt, fossils, and the life of the 15th-century astronomer Johannes von Gmunden, whose theories influenced Copernicus.
The museum integrates into the building the Gothic St Jakob’s, Gmunden’s first church. The sanitary objects collection is monumental and includes a toilet regularly mounted by the royal Po (bottom) of Kaiser Franz Josef in his hunting lodge near Ebensee.
