He began his career as a folklorist and ethnologist. In 1884–85, Krauss received funding from the Crown Prince Rudolf to gather folklore and ballads of the Guslar singers in Bosnia, Croatia and Herzogovenia. As a result of this field research, he published a two-volume collection of fairytales, Sagen und Märchen der Südslaven.
