The Hoisn House on the outskirts of Molln was once one of the largest jew's harp forges in Molln. Lovingly restored by the association "Friends of the Hoisn House", the building now provides insights into "the life of the Jew's harp smiths of yesteryear".

Visitors are invited to discover the herb garden and to relax and linger in the old tree garden with its paths and squares.

The Hoisn Haus is intended to be a "LIVING MEMORIAL" and a place
- where old values are transported into the future,
- where people come together and chat,
- where parties are celebrated and events take place,
- where it becomes comfortable and
- where you are invited to be part of it.

Translated with (free version)
The Hoisn Haus in Molln is an old, originally preserved Jew's harp farm and invites you as a visitor to a convivial get-together. The rooms tell the story of jew's harp production, which was practiced here since the 17th century. Let yourself be carried away into another world.

On certain weekends, the Hoisn Haus invites you to special cultural and adventure programs. Also in Advent a visit in the warm room of the Hoisn Haus is a nice pre-Christmas experience!

Guided tours or escorts through the Hoisn Haus are possible at any time from February to the end of October for groups of 12 people or more by appointment.
Organic snacks are available on request.
