Stoob
POTTERY VILLAGE AND HOME OF THE STOOB FLASK


The village of Stoob lies in central Burgenland beside the stream, the Stoob, which gives the village its name. The village has become famous as a result of its long pottery tradition. A guild chest documents Stoob as the centre of the pottery trade. In the olden days old kilns were used to produce Stoob flasks, which still exist today.

Stoob Pottery Museum tells the story of pottery, from the start of clay extraction to today’s creative art pottery.

The Stoob Landesfachschule für Keramik und Ofenbau, a school which specialises in ceramics and kiln construction, is the only one of its kind in Austria.

Visitors looking to rest and recuperate can discover the protected countryside around the “Biri”, jokey local dialect for “mountain”, the joke being that it is really only a hill, and Burgenland’s biggest continuous orchard meadow, covering approximately 100 hectares.
