The Hochkeil Snowboardmuseum offers insight into the history of snowboarding. The boards can be viewed and touched in the showroom near the Hochkeilhaus. There you can really feel and touch how the boards developed over the years.
100 boards in the showroom show insights from prehistoric times, the predecessor, the Snurfer era and modern snowboarding! At different spots in the Team Hostel Hochkeilhaus small exhibition areas show details about different snowboard history topics.
Over 1000 boards are also available for events, shootings and exhibitions. In our natural snow area Hochkeil there are also regular oldschool sessions!
