Nativity scenes – classic and unusual
Artwork from Tyrol and around the world
For many, nativity scenes are a symbol of hope and a display of appreciation for tradition and art. Lovingly designed nativity scenes are treasured in Innsbruck’s neighbouring villages and Rum is considered one of the classic nativity scene villages in the Innsbruck area. Alongside the classic nativity scenes with primarily hand-carved wooden figures, the houses in Rum also have many other extraordinary surprises in store, including nativity scenes with clothed woollen dolls, nativity scenes completely carved as reliefs, old, hand-painted paper nativity scenes and even Sicilian terracotta nativity scenes – all just waiting to be admired by nativity scene enthusiasts and interested visitors alike.
Experience the wonder of Christmas up close
Anyone who wants to join the traditional “Krippenschauen” nativity scene viewings should contact the local nativity scene association. These works of art, both large and small, are found in the local houses and chapels and can be admired by visitors between Boxing Day on the 26 December and sometime in mid-January. The parish church in Rum offers a comprehensive nativity scene guide during this time with useful information and tips. Since the beautiful masterpieces are often found in private homes and buildings, it’s unfortunately not possible for large groups to visit these places due to a lack of space. However, the public nativity scenes at the bandstand, the “Marienkapelle” (Madonna chapel) and the St. George Parish Church in Rum offer enough space for larger groups during opening hours.
