Stift Stams (Abbey of Stams)

Description

A unique treasure of art and culture in Tyrol – the stunning Baroque monastery in Stams with its orangery and monastery shop.

The Baroque Cistercian monastery in the village of Stams is visible from afar in the centre of the Upper Inn Valley, south of the River Inn. Founded in 1273 by Count Meinhard II of Gorizia-Tyrol, the monastery was created to provide a burial site for all the future Counts of Gorizia-Tyrol. According to a popular legend, however, the foundation of the monastery is attributable to the gruesome death of Conradin, the last member of the Hohenstaufen dynasty who was beheaded in Naples in 1268. Conradin’s mother, whose first marriage was to Conrad IV of Hohenstaufen, King of Germany, is said to have asked her second husband, Count Meinhard II, to build the monastery in Stams as a memorial to her son. The monastery certainly has many tales to tell…

At the heart of the monastery is the collegiate church, a basilica since 1984. With its princely tomb, magnificent pulpit, impressive vault and wall paintings and what is probably the most renowned piece of artwork in the church, the Tree of Life altar, the basilica is a veritable cultural highlight in Tyrol.

After 20 years of building renovation work, the Cistercian abbey in Stams opens its doors to its new museum in November 2017. A permanent exhibition displays a wide cross-section of the most important objects from the various collections. Examples include large altars, precious tunicles, grand furniture, paintings and portraits, an astronomical table, and an apothecary.

Another jewel of Baroque architecture is the monastery’s orangery. With its stunning restaurant garden, it offers the perfect place to savour the atmosphere of the monastery over a cup of coffee.
