The bread museum in Upper Austria’s Asten takes its visitors on a voyage of discovery, spanning the discovery of bread to the large variety available nowadays.

The bread museum in Upper Austria’s Asten takes its visitors on a voyage of discovery, spanning the discovery of bread to the large variety available nowadays.

This variety can also be seen in the architecture of the museum: edges and smooth lines, wood and stainless steel, tradition and innovation, light and dark. The impressive, spectacular building hosts the customer information centre and is event venue for up to 120 guests. Visitors can enter this museum of bread-related curiosities via a free-standing spiral staircase. With its calm grading, the smoked oak parquet floor is restrained, placing the impressive structure in the spotlight. The spiral forms a stairwell, which offers room for all kind of vertical presentations. As more than 3,000 stainless steel shingles shine in the sun outside, the wood structure of the building becomes visible on the inside. Curved walls enable visitors to literally take a round tour through all the exhibition areas.

Smoked oak in Trendpark, with its elegant, dark colour, distinguishes itself from the bright, smooth, round wooden walls. In the exhibition areas, objects are presented on walls, tables and in glass displays that are integrated with the architecture. Thanks to its dough-like shape, the bread museum is recognisable as such even from a distance. The parquet also extends throughout the self-supporting spiral stairs that span over four floors.

The intention of the PANEUM Bread Museum is to clearly show its visitors what influence
and what value bread has had throughout human history.
