Municipal Museum and Multscher Museum

What to see in Vipiteno - Sterzing, Bolzano, Trentino-South Tyrol


The museum is housed in the Commenda house of the Teutonic Order near the parish church of Sterzing. The distance from the city centre is about ten minutes.

The museum houses most of the late Gothic works of the famous sculptor and painter Hans Multscher from Ulm, such as the altarpieces which are among the most important works of art in southern Germany and the last great work of the master from Ulm.

The altar was created in the years 1456-1459 for the parish church 'Our Lady of the Marsh'. The four faces of the altar show eight paintings with scenes from the Passion of Christ and the life of Mary. In addition, the museum houses feudal certificates and imperial confirmations, privileges and dispositions of various craft associations, seals and insignia of guilds. The rooms are a spectacle and well worth a visit. They serve as a source of information on the local history of the Teutonic Order, such as the Commendatore's bedroom (Knights' Hall), or the Count's room (Panorama Room) with a view of the entire Sterzing basin. A visit to St. Elisabeth's Church and the magnificent portraits of Commander C.M. von Wolkenstein, Master Maximilian III of the Teutonic Knights and the large oil painting "Eiche von Thorn" (Thorn Oak) by Herman Balk enrich your visit.

Opening hours
Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
