The House of Fasnacht
For a long time owned by the Lechleitner family (“Glåser”) the Glåserhaus has been in the possession of the town of Imst since 1993, which donated it to Fasnacht. The run-down building, which was protected as a historic monument because of its rare Lüftlmalerei (wall paintings) and its ancient vaults, was renovated with a tremendous amount of private initiative (more than 6,000 hours of voluntary work), financial aid by local, state and federal governments as well as donations by private foundations (Messerschmitt- and Haveland foundations). Since 1998 it has housed the archive, were all the masks, tools, instruments, costumes etc. are stored and issued out to the participants before each Fasnacht.
