Forecast

Cold air masses will pass over the Alps from the north to the south bringing fresh snow to the valleys. But as this air is not very humid, the snow showers will not bring much new accumulation of snow. We will even get a few clear spells.

Tendency

Little change is expected for tomorrow. On Thursday and on Friday clouds will decrease and give way to blue skies and perfect sunshine. And the best news is that there are still many nice days to come!

Monastery church and Museum Wilten

Description

The monastery in Wilten is located at the foot of the Bergisel mountain. One of the two large ecclesiastical buildings is the Stiftskirche (monastery church), not to be confused with the basilica next door. In the monastery church, you can observe the baroque splendour as if from a book. Christoph and Anton Georg Gumpp, as representatives of the renowned Innsbruck construction dynasty, designed the church to be ornate. Frescoes and stuccoes decorate the interior, designed by Kaspar Waldmann. The richly-stocked museum can be visited by prior registration and a voluntary donation.

To learn about the history of Innsbruck, it is impossible to ignore the monastery in Wilten. The resident Premonstratensians have helped shape the city and its surroundings over the centuries, and Innsbruck would never have existed without them giving up parts of their land. The monastery was first documented in the 12th century and, today, around 30 friars and 21 priests pastorally tend to its continued existence. The baroque style stems from the monastery's heyday in the 17th century.

The monastery church is also home to the Wilten Boys' Choir.
