In addition, the exhibition addresses culinary culture and eating habits, also customs, traditions and rituals all about food, table manners and etiquette.
Schloss Hof Estate –Trade and Logistics
Food covers not only our need for nourishment but also offers scope for global trade and speculation. How and why is food traded in stock exchanges and what effects does this have on world-wide provision? How does food get to the supermarket, and where do we do our food shopping today? The history of logistics and historical trade routes ranges all the way to modern logistics centres and trade flows. How were goods transported in bygone days? What emission-free alternatives are we rediscovering today? These and other essential issues about the path taken by our food from production to the supermarket and its logistics are the subjects being explored at Schloss Hof Estate.
Schloss Niederweiden – From grocery store to high-tech-supermarket
In Schloss Niederweiden you are invited to take a trip into the past, present and future of “trading”. The exhibition shows the historical development of the supermarket from the corner shop next door to the latest developments. An original grocery store from 1900 tells the story of the retail trade long before the now universal self-service store. Supermarket psychology, innovations in trade and digitisation: what will the supermarket of the future look like? Interactive, haptic and with original exhibits, the exhibition will be a sensory and sensuous experience!
The combined ticket entitles the holder to single admission to the major exhibition in Lower Austria.
