The nativity scene in Götzens is one of the village’s most special attractions and a rare piece thanks to its exceptional size and high artistic quality. The nativity scene is magnificently dressed and dates back to the first half of the 19th century. The style is reminiscent of the baroque era and has an air of the final scene from a baroque opera. The huge, three-piece nativity scene background was painted by Georg Haller (1772-1838). The magnificent figures were created by a group of local artists and are approx. 50 cm high.
The nativity scene was largely produced in Götzens and the surrounding area. Doll makers, wax artists, tailors, embroiderers, wood carvers, sculpture painters, passementerie makers, hat & wig-makers, carpenters, turners and background painters all worked together to create this masterpiece.
It is one of the most splendid and most artistically respected nativity scenes in the country.
The nativity scene is displayed in the pilgrimage church from 24th December until 2nd February (Candlemas).
