The Maranatha Nativity-Scene Museum

Insights into this traditional South Tyrolean art

Immerse yourself in the South Tyrolean history of wood-carved nativity scenes.

Do you wish to learn more about local culture and tradition during your holidays in the Dolomites? Then visit the Maranatha Nativity-Scene Museum in Lutago/Luttach in Valle Aurina/Ahrntal. It is an extraordinary museum – an idea of the Gartner family – and was opened in 2000. An exhibition on about 1,300 m² features nativity scenes of various styles. The first part of the museum was built like a traditional Tyrolean barn and holds miniature farmhouses, idyllic mountain sceneries, and hand-carved statues. The other part features Far-Eastern objects, such as extravagant wall paintings and the world’s largest panoramic nativity scenery. A vast ruin landscape with starry sky and life-size statues, hand crafted by the renowned wood carver Jonas Pitscheider, complete the exhibition. Enjoy this experience during your spa break in Italy and afterwards, indulge in some serious TLC in the Belvita Leading Wellnesshotels Südtirol.
