Location Oberndorf

This black and white photo shows the Altach district of Oberndorf in the 1899 floods. Oberndorf experienced the worst floods in its history that year. The Salzach rose to a level of 10.3 m, and the boatmen’s homes were flooded up to the first floor. Following this, a decision was made at the turn of the 20th century to move this district to the other side of the river.
