The Garberhaus building is closely connected with an important event in the village history of Zirl.
In 1908, when the last major fire raged in Zirl, the blaze came to a standstill right by this large house south of the village centre. Today, the charred planks of the wooden village walls on the north side of the house provide a constant reminder of the catastrophic fire. The name of the house comes from "Garber" (= tanner: craftsmen who turn animal skins into leather).
The house has a double loft, which was used to dry the animal skins.
