A very nice bicycle collection and public museum is located in Voesendorf, near Vienna. Some boneshakers, pennyfarthings, a lot of safety bicycles from 1888 up to 1900, many bicycles built after 1900, rare austrian bikes, younger racing bicycles and a lot of interesting pictures and memorabilia can been seen.
The collection started in 1985 with a simple and small metal sign of a local bicycle club, now its for sure one of the biggest collections in austria.
The museum usually is only open every first saturday a month but Mr. Matejowics, who is owner of the museum opened it for us on a thursday evening - which was very nice of him. He is a very pleasant person and showed us a lot of specialities and we had a long and interesting talk.
