How did so-called ‘regular folk’ travel on the roads of the world? Vötter’s classic car museum in Austria dedicates itself to the characteristic vehicles of the 1950s to 1970s with an extensive collection. It includes impressive highlights such as a Messerschmidt cabin scooter and a BMW Isetta. You may know some of the cars from your own youth, of that of your parents, grandparents or acquaintances – perfect for reminiscing and catching up on automotive history!
Thing to see and experience
Let yourself be whisked away to a motorised world full of classics and rarities, including cars, motorcycles and tractors, such as the 23-seater Steyr-Zeiserl (the largest convertible in the world) or the steam train BJ 1893 with the saloon car from 1915. Here you can watch interesting videos non-stop. Also included is a trip to a 1960s flat with our grandma’s original furniture.
Another area allows you to deeply immerse yourself in the history of Volkswagen, dedicated to the genius and car pioneer Ferdinand Porsche. There’s good reason for this; the residence of the Porsche family is in Schüttdorf / Zell am See, about five kilometres from here.
Messerschmitt expert Fritz Fend
The Messerschmidt cabin roller is almost the holy grail for classic car aficionados. This special, particularly expensive rarity was donated by family friend Fritz Fend, constructor of the Messerschmidt cabin scooter and co-constructor of the Messerschmidt jet fighter.
Fend visited us during the cabin scooter meet-up in Europe in 1998, in which the Grossglockner High Alpine Road was conquered. The final evening took place in close proximity to Kaprun Castle – filmed, by the way, by former sports station DSF who also covered the entire meet-up and the High Alpine Road conquerors. A separate exhibition space in the museum with a commemorative plate and the motto “Fritz Fend and his vehicles” is dedicated to Fritz Fend. You can also watch a documentary about the tilting train in our classic car museum in Austria.
