Augustinian Museum Rattenberg
A LOOK BEHIND THE HISTORIC WALLS OF THE MONASTERY CHURCH

Augustinian Museum Rattenberg

The attic in the Augustinian Museum is home to a panoply of historic objects giving an insight to the monastery's past. Thanks to a clever extension, visitors reach the innermost part of the church and are treated to breathtaking views over Rattenberg from the half-timbered tower.

Tyrolean art treasures from nine centuries

The museum in the buildings of the former Augustinian and later Servite monastery, which existed from 1384 to 1971, is unique.

The collections display Tyrolean art treasures from nine centuries. Among them are exquisite masterpieces from the Romanesque and Gothic periods as well as numerous testimonies of religious folk art.

The cultural-historical objects from the region as well as a collection of rare Gothic sculptures are well worth a visit.

The Augustinian Museum has been awarded the Tyrolean Museum Award and the Austrian Museum Award.

The only church tower in Tyrol open to the public

A unique feature in the Tyrol providing a spectacular insight to medieval Rattenberg.

Tyrol's only church tower open to the public is located in the Augustinian Museum. Admire the baroque tower clock, historic bells and the viewing platform offering spectacular views of Rattenberg's roofscape and the Inn Valley.

You could think you've been transported back in time when you enter the gloomy, dim church attic in the Augustinian Museum. Anchored wooden planks serve as a walkway and the church dome, which can be adventurously circled arches in front of you. You are directly above the church vault. A structural feature visitors are unlikely to see anywhere else.

Underneath is the "Augustinian sky", which is Tyrol's first monumental vault fresco. The extension makes it possible to view the masterpiece from a few metres away. One stands directly in front of it, so to speak, and views the ceiling fresco at close range.
