Coming by train, bus, bicycle or on foot helps to protect the environment. The S2 rapid transit station Steindorf is about ten minutes’ walk away, just follow the lakeside path.

TOOLBOX -  immerse yourself in an art and event space. A toolbox – every house needs one. And even more so in a house that centres on building. The performative toolbox from the durch:formen association uses instructions on cards and a diverse range of materials to help you to get to know the building in a different way – and a very personal way. The toolbox is included in the admission price as an experimental mediation format.

Domenig Steinhaus - built autobiography:

Unexpected spatial formations, dramatic lighting, architectural sculpture and unconventional interiors create a three-dimensional experience and encourage a change of perspective. The architectural icon of world format is open to visitors every year from May to October and tells the uncompromising stories of the artist Günther Domenig. He incorporated autobiographical elements in the overall form and in individual objects, which are interwoven to form an individual emotional cosmos.

Further information

The unique spaces are easy to explore on your own and can help you find the inspiration to think and build differently. For children: Discover the piggyback, the ejector seat and the bird Nix-Nuz-Nix. Or ask for the architecture game room book DOMENIG? DENMOGI at the visitor service.

The DOMENIG STEINHAUS extends over five floors and does not have barrier-free access (there is no lift). The outdoor facilities and objects in the garden are suitable for barrier-free viewing. Within one hour you can gain a good impression of the house and garden. To round off the tour, we recommend watching films about Günther Domenig and his STEINHAUS in the cinema room or concert recordings on the first floor.

We look forward to your visit and ask for your understanding that visits may be restricted from time to time when events or workshops are taking place.
